Nick – Uptown

My name is Nick and I’ve been a dog lover for as long as I can remember. Growing up in the greater Boston area, my siblings and I would always beg my parents for a dog. I’ll never forget the day my mom picked my brother and me up from school in a car full of dog treats and toys! We knew right away we were headed to pick up a new member of the family, who turned out to be a standard Poodle named Toby.

Ever since then, I’ve had a passion for pet care. In college, I volunteered at the MSPCA helping dogs find new homes, and I started working as a dog walker professionally in 2014. I moved to New York a couple of years later, and I’ve since helped countless furry friends discover their favorite spots all around the city. Until now, I’ve spent most of my time walking in Greenpoint, Williamsburg, and Greenwich Village, and I’m happy to be closer to the heart of the city.

Outside of pet care, I’ve worked as a touring and studio drummer for various bands, and I have a passion for visual art and graphic design.

I’m so excited to be a part of the RuffCity team and I can’t wait to meet you and your furry best friend! Until then!
