Nicol joined the Summer Search Bay Area team as a mentor in 2013. He now leads our Summer Experience programming for students, focusing on creating opportunities where all youth can experience novel outdoor and social environments that excite, empower, and provide ample space for the exploration of self and others. He is a people person, an optimist, and strives to stand for the potential in every situation. Beyond work, he loves to play games inside and outside, cook, build, and garden. Most of all he loves to spend quality time with family and friends and make people feel heard and appreciated.
