Nick has spent over 25 years in the Accessibility Industry and has a Bachelor’s in Human Movement. As a paraplegic, he has experienced firsthand the requirements of accessibility, and it has also presented opportunities, including winning a gold medal and being a dual Paralympian in wheelchair basketball. He founded MGAC Accessibility Consulting, now part of Jensen Hughes, and became an integral planner and technical consultant to many corporate and large event organizers, including Olympic and Paralympic bid and delivery cities.

The combination of both sporting and business experiences including his participation as a member of the “Rollers” gold medal team in Atlanta in 1996, elevated him to become an expert consultant to the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) for over 10 years. This culminated in him winning the Silver Medal for Event Services at the Rushmans Event Awards in London. Nick is a recognized global expert in culture, master planning, consulting and education for accessibility and universal design applications.

Nick’s extensive experience has enabled him to provide accessibility and universal design advice across a diverse range of high-profile projects locally, nationally and internationally. Nick has provided innovative accessible ideas and solutions across a magnitude of transformational public realm projects supporting sustainable long-term ambitions, overcoming challenges and building positive outcomes.
