Why it’s personal with Nick
“My parents spurred a passion within me to make the world a better place. My mom and dad both had this within them. Initially, my mom worked as a research biologist at Columbia University in their Lamont Labs doing work on the impact of radioactive matter on ecosystems. This work led her to give Congressional Testimony used in the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. Later, she went from research to teaching biology and subsequently rose to become Superintendent of Schools, exhibiting a passion to give every child an equal opportunity. My father was a top organist and musician. He worked as a teacher in a private school in NYC where many of his students graduated into careers on Broadway.
I believe it is possible to accelerate positive impact by figuring out how to use economically viable investments in lieu of taxpayer-funded subsidies and charity. Whipstitch is a great example of this as we help clients and the consumer products industry more broadly grow, and in doing so, spread wellness across a growing consumer base enabling greater funding of the missions of sustainability and JEDI, for example. ”
