About Nick Thomas
Nick Thomas is proud to be a life-long Coloradan. He was born in Boulder, spending his summers in Grand Lake and Estes Park, and many a winter in Breckenridge. He later attended CSU in Fort Collins, earning a dual-degree. Nick was elected as a Student Senator, then appointed the Interim Director of Student Services. He proudly calls himself both a Ram and a Buff due to his upbringing. This theme, of consistently straddling two separately perceived worlds, has continued throughout his life.
Nick expanded his understanding of social issues and best practices in community building during his travels to more than 70 countries across the globe. He earned an MA in Diplomacy & International Studies from DU’s Josef Korbel School and later an MBA from Hult Business School. He has worked in everything from government, to education, to non-profits, to business, including airshows with Oracle’s Sean Tucker.
Nick has collaborated with tech startups such as StQry, Dash Tickets, Arkha, Startup Grind, and Boulder’s Unreasonable Institute. He has also helped start several small businesses, from a video production company (Snowman Productions) to the small family real estate & property management business. More than anything, his passion is service: service to his community, to the great state of Colorado, and to the United States of America.
