Nick comes to Van Dam Custom Boats from Fowlerville, Michigan. His background is strong in many areas of the fabrication and machining processes. After three years working directly with a press brake and doing general fabrication, his most recent experience was as a Dream Consultant at TechShop Detroit. No, not analyzing dreams. TechShop Detroit, a collaborative effort with Ford product development, is a membership based maker’s space for innovation. Nick was there to help people plan, shape and finish projects into products of all shapes and sizes. Nick also worked concurrently as a machinist in the aerospace shop at Williams International. He is committed to learning and honing his craft.
Nick has a love of sailing and has continued racing here on Lake Charlevoix after years of racing sail boats in Detroit. He grew up riding BMX and Motocross bikes and is an avid snowboarder. He has recently taken up fly fishing and is excited that all of his hobbies fit perfectly with the northern Michigan way of life. Also in his free time he enjoys creating random metal pieces in the shop at Van Dam.
