Since working for the Greening of Detroit as an urban agriculture intern in the summer of 2008, Nick has been infatuated with urban farming as a tool for neighborhood revitalization in Detroit. Inspired by the experience, Nick decided to attend law school to learn how legal systems could be utilized to empower Detroiters to revitalize their own communities. After spending his first year of law school at Wayne State University, Nick transferred to the University of Michigan. During his time at Michigan, Nick has been a student-attorney with the Community and Economic Development Clinic, where he has worked with numerous non-profit clients in Detroit, and his article titled, Utilizing Michigan Brownfield Policies to Incentivize Community-Based Urban Agriculture in Detroit, will be published in the upcoming issue of the Michigan Journal of Environmental and Administrative Law. Aside from urban farming, Nick loves Detroit Tigers baseball, University of Michigan basketball, as well as hiking and reading Southern Gothic literature.
