Through studies in Theology, Systems Theory, Buddhist Philosophy and Addiction Theory, and as a hospital chaplain, a street & mental health worker, and a palliative care nurse, Nik has cultivated a compassionate, sophisticated and also rigorously pragmatic understanding of identity, limitation and transformation.
Nik was the Web Director of the Canadian Music Centre for five years where he oversaw the redevelopment of its award winning website and the migration of multiple databases (5 national offices, over 600 composers, 20,000 scores and many hundreds of recordings) into one unified accessible system. He initiated and was the director of CMC’s Electronic Music distribution, producing a (double) CD which spanned over 50 years of Canadian experimental and electroacoustic music.
Nik was Digital Communications Coordinator of KAIROS Canada for five years: a fast paced international human rights org working in the thick of the most contentious political and ethical issues of our time where, while juggling multiple program campaigns, he launched a now highly successful social media presence, redeveloped its website (twice), as well as migrating its database to an Open Source cloud-based CRM.
Nik was the director of Cirque-Samsara, a web design firm, for 12 years where he consulted, directed, developed and managed the website presence for numerous clients, specialising in independent artists, health professionals, and the not-for-profit sector. His clients included Small World Music, the Canadian League of Composers, Worlds of Music, and many others.
