Nick has been an integral part of the Wedbush Securities Equity Research team for over thirteen years. He focuses primarily on the video game industry, with over a decade of experience studying its most important companies, its key trends, and the corresponding ramifications for entertainment more broadly. He has become a go-to resource for clients seeking to get up-to-speed on the industry, as well its past, present, and future. The video game team’s in-depth research notes, detailed financial models, and network of contacts on the Buy Side and within the video game industry have made it an important resource for the investment community.

Prior to joining Wedbush Securities, Nick started off his career at PricewaterhouseCoopers, before spending time at both Barclays Capital and Lehman Brothers in their investment banking departments. He holds a degree in Economics and Accounting from Claremont McKenna College.


Nick’s long history of studying the video game industry exclusively sets him apart from many others on the Sell Side, and provides him with a unique understanding of important read-throughs from the daily news cycle.
