Nicki keeps us balanced with her warmth and spirit. If reconciling big production budgets is our medicine, Nicki is our spoonful of sugar.

When growing up in small town B.C., his 10th birthday wish was an espresso machine — a clue that he’d soon be off searching for a perfect cup of java. A coincidence we now own a fancy coffee machine?
