About Nicholas

A 25 year old with an education in Biology, experience in various leadership roles, 3 years of experience in laboratory research at Emmanuel College and Brigham & Women's/Harvard Medical, and 4 years of teaching high school Biology.

Having worked in the supplement industry for several years it was infuriating for myself to sit and watch companies produce products every two months with no real scientific evidence to support it but all of the hype and marketing necessary to rob consumers of their hard earned money. Starting off at Nimbus Nutrition in a company rep position, working up to running all of research & development, and as of recently, becoming the owner. As an individual and as a company we operate off of the believes and passion we operate openly, honestly, and genuine in our efforts to do what ever we can to help our customers achieve their goals, overcome obstacles, and become the best version of themselves they can!
