Perhaps it was his hypnotic eyes that spellbound Nelly Furtado, Lady Gaga, Richard Branson and the host of other celebrities Nick has directed and filmed. Conceivably, those engulfing sapphire spheres were responsible for crafting video magic for clients like Diageo, Motorola, United Way and Proctor and Gamble. It is possible that those enchanting balls of cool blue fire are what won him placement with Clearwater Films in Vancouver through the Canadian Film & Television Production Association (CFTPA) under the Global Mentorship Program.
But it’s not just his eyes that are hypnotic. Nick has an uncanny ability to engage his students and create a level of relatedness that keeps them coming back for more. As an Apple, Adobe and Autodesk Smoke certified trainer Nick is able to put his BA in Film and Sociology from the University of Toronto to good use.
In April 2005, Nick produced and directed Machel Montano’s: Fire Fete, a concert showcasing the number one Soca artist in the world. In January 2011, Nick co-edited his first feature length documentary 'My Father and The Man in Black', a personal journey from writer/director Jonathan Holiff, whose father Saul was personal manager to Johnny Cash from 1960 to 1973
When he is not busy impressing his students at Witz Education, this half Ukrainian, half Trinidadian can be found playing dodge ball, volleyball and tennis.
