  • Nico mixes up a new fantasy-themed cocktail at every session of Dungeons & Dragons he runs for his friends.
  • He has real-world foodservice experience as a Subway sandwich artist and the manager of a popsicle stand, plus his grandfather owns a corn-and-soybean farm.
  • In his free time, he enjoys watching cooking shows.


After beginning a career in the foodservice industry, Nico took a decade-long detour through film school and Hollywood. In recent years — inspired by his family background in farming — he started writing bi-monthly reports on the fruits-and-veggies industry for "Produce Blueprints," the Blue Book's fresh-commodity magazine. Lately, he's covered food entertainment, commodity spotlights, and culinary history for Alb Media. He also pens YA Fantasy novels with settings based on real-world, ancient cultures. Before writing professionally, Nico worked for a handful of years in TV production at studios such as Nickelodeon, Netflix, and Marvel.


Nico graduated Summa Cum Laude from Dodge College at Chapman University with a BFA in film production and a minor in psychology. His behind-the-scenes expertise plus his ability to see how media influences the mind makes him uniquely qualified to comment on the cultural impact of culinary entertainment.
