Nick joined Cline Bettridge Bernstein as a designer in May 2016. Previously, his roles as an Electrical Engineer in Houston, TX and Philadelphia, PA had focused on the MEP aspects of lighting. While working with lighting as an Engineer, Nick found himself drawn to the artistic opportunities offered in architectural lighting design. He moved to New York City in 2015 and has worked on a range of projects that include building façades, transportation hubs, high-end offices, and public buildings for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) and the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA).
Every day, Nick brings his perspective as both a lighting designer and an engineer to his project work. His key interests are sustainable design, lighting controls, the use of color to add dynamism, and the inventive and practical application of daylighting techniques.
Nick graduated from Pennsylvania State University (PSU) with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering degree (concentration in Lighting and Electrical Design) and a minor in Architectural Studies. He also studied structural design and architecture both abroad in Italy and at PSU. He is a member of the IES and a LEED Green Associate.
