Hi, I'm Nick.

I’ve been a writer for nearly my entire life. From my early college days writing for the UWM Post and Shepherd Express to working in advertising as a copywriter and ultimately Group Creative Director. I started commonstate.com to fuel my desire to tell stories. In advertising, I ran accounts and supervised creative people to do great things. I’ve taken part in new business pitches and am very comfortable in a client-facing role. I have won awards in advertising, journalism, and photography. I have inspired people to be their best selves. I’m also a professional musician and songwriter and have written for music libraries over the years. I’ll never stop learning and being creative.

I’m a creative, multi-faceted, multi-tasking problem solver.

I have extensive experience in:

Campaign creation and development


Creative Direction

Content Creation

Social Media

Advertising Strategy

Brand Identity

Digital Strategy

Video Production/Directing



Music Composition
