Nick worked as a superintendent in the residential new-construction industry until the housing bubble burst in 2008. He opened Bear Creek Construction in 2009, which he still owns and operates.
Shortly after opening Bear Creek, Nick was contacted by the original ShelfGenie of Omaha franchise owner and he became a ShelfGenie installer. Nick served as an installer for four years before buying the ShelfGenie of Omaha franchise himself. Nick and his business partner Jay Durmaskin have since purchased two additional ShelfGenie franchises, ShelfGenie of Des Moines and ShelfGenie of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
Nick also serves as one of two teachers who train new ShelfGenie installers nationwide. Nick lives in Omaha, Nebraska with his wife of 11 years and their nine-year-old daughter. He still appreciates the hugs and fresh-baked cookies offered by his happy clients after a clean, quick and accurate Glide-Out shelving installation.
