Nick is a Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) student from Roseville, California concentrating in International Development. His true passions lie with people and agriculture.
As an Undergraduate, Nick attended California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo where he majored in Wine and Viticulture and minored in Global Politics. After graduation, Nick served as a Sustainable Agriculture Systems volunteer in an Emberá village in the Darién jungle of Panama. He worked primarily with smallholder farmers to increase total factor productivity and formed an organization of coffee producers. Before joining the MSFS program, Nick traveled to rural Ghana where he worked directly with extension officers from the Ministry of Agriculture. His areas of interest in agriculture are community-based organizational development, public affairs, trade, Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA), agroforestry, and value chain management. Nick strives to establish himself as a leading voice in the adoption of sustainable and inclusive agricultural policy.
Nick is currently a student representative for the MSFS class of 2022 and the secretary of Georgetown’s Anti-Poverty Society (GAPS). In addition to English, he speaks Spanish and Northern Emberá.
"I chose MSFS because I wanted to engage with future world leaders and challenge myself in an unparalleled, academic and professional environment."
