Nicholas enjoys playing the guitar, video games, and watching movies. He took an interest in music after he saw an ad on Spotify about retro music, and it got him into music, and he said that he was also inspired by his parents. He said his favorite song is Snow by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, because of the unique rhythm which makes it very appealing to him. He usually plays his guitar in his free time as he wants to improve his guitar skill. Outside of music he also plays football and baseball.  he enjoys playing those sports, but they are very time-consuming. As a result, he feels like he didn’t have enough time to do everything when he reached high school. As a result, he stopped playing. Despite this, he keeps on following his passion for music and still plays the guitar. 

Though Nicholas has a passion for music, he stated that he does not plan to pursue music. He said that he wants to go to UC Davis to pursue a health science degree, his dream college school.
