"Design has value. If executed well, the process of design can be an extremely effective tool when developing the future of our cities. I hope to demonstrate the value of this process and how it can be successfully integrated into NORA’s already prosperous and robust redevelopment strategy, empower our neighborhoods, and provide a vision to the voice of our community."
With the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority Nick will work on The National Disaster Resilience Communities project that will enable low to moderate income homeowners to retrofit their properties to manage the effects of storm water and prevent flooding. Nick anticipates utilizing past experiences integrating participatory design processes and neighborhood outreach into community development.
Nick holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Ball State University and a Master of Architecture from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
