Nik is the President and Founder of NW Sports Management Group (NWSMG), the Northwest-based sports agency he started in 2008 after completing a professional baseball career with the Chicago White Sox. His time with the White Sox, as a left-handed pitcher, was cut short due to injury, as he had two shoulder procedures that ended his career in 2007.
Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, the fifth of six children, has never strayed far from his Northwest roots. Nik attended Willamette University, a small liberal arts college in Salem, Oregon, where he excelled in both the classroom and on the playing field. He earned a degree in Business Economics in 2001, and was elected by a panel of his peers to the Willamette University Athletic Hall of Fame in 2011.
The President of NWSMG has many passions in life that range from most sports, to playing the piano and speaking Spanish. He is responsible for starting NW Futures, an elite, youth baseball academy in Vancouver, Washington. Nik works to align his professional clients with the youth in the city at an indoor facility he owns and operates called 8th Street Sports. It is, and will continue to be his vision, to help the youth in the Northwest work toward their athletic dreams and aspirations with the help of his clients.
