Having played in the AFL for over a decade, Nick is a polished media presenter, businessman, corporate speaker and community ambassador.
Nick came onto the AFL scene in 2002 having been recruited from the Bendigo U18’s and was drafted to the St Kilda Football Club at pick 13. Soon after his debut game in 2002, Nick became a regular senior player and has since developed himself as a skillful and creative midfielder.
Having played over 300 AFL Games in his career, Nick’s football honours speak for themselves. Nick has been selected in the All-Australian team three times (2005, 2009 & 2011), represented Australia in the International Rules Series in 2004, came Runner Up in the 2011 Brownlow Medal count and has played in three grand finals. Supporting his on-field accolades, Nick has been known and admired for his leadership qualities and was involved in St Kilda’s leadership group for 8 years and was automatically included in the leadership ground in his first year at the North Melbourne Football Club.
Having just completed his fifteen AFL season, Nick has another busy year ahead. He will follow his passion to work in the media and will continue to develop his NDS Academy whilst also continuing to donate his time towards his charity and community work.
When Nick isn’t busy working in the world of sport and business, he likes to enjoy a hit of golf, a coffee with mates, a walk with his beloved dogs and loves spending time with his friends and family.
