Nick worked hard to learn cutting-edge VR tools and techniques on his own time, while simultaneously studying 3D Animation & CGI at Dawson.  He regularly posted his work publicly, and built an online following.  He soon became our resident expert on animating in VR, and generously shared his knowledge with both faculty and students alike.
