I would like people to remember me for being compassionate, cheerful, and comical. But now that I look at that list, maybe they’ll only think of me as alliterative.
I’m drawn to this business because I have a tremendous opportunity to be empathetic in my job. Not only for my clients but also their causes. I can’t think of too many jobs in finance where this is the case.
My mother – who raised me entirely on her own – is my hero. For that matter, any single parent has my profound respect. But I’d like to think that my mom was extraordinary.
Before I die, I hope to instill the virtue of kindness in my kids. Of course, along the way, if they improve their current sleeping and eating habits, that’d be great too.
Standup comedy makes me laugh the most. But my wife is a close second.
Nick brings to Caprock a diversity of financial and business development experience, with particular expertise in impact investing and real assets.

Prior to that, Nick served as a Director at Investors’ Circle, where he managed deal sourcing and due diligence on behalf of the angel investor network.
