Nick interest rose in acting after his mom forcefully pushed him to go for audition for a community theatre production of "Pirates of Penzance". Nick passed the audition with flying colours and was cast as a pirate and immediately fell in love with the stage. He started studying acting during weekends and taking jazz and theatre performance in high school.
His biggest moment came when he along with his family were selected for a national Sony PS2/ WalMart commercial. Very early in his career Nick realized that he loves facing camera more than stage. He was offered a full academic scholarship to the university but Nick denied and shifted to Los Angeles to pursue his love of television and film.
He made his film debut in 2007 with the short film The Erogenous Zone. He played his first major role in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and then in Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster. This film made him a known celeb.
