In 2003, Nicholas toured with Metallica and moved to Los Angeles to work as a technician for a prominent lighting manufacturer as they began to develop high end media servers for live entertainment.

As touring productions grew in scale and complexity, Nicholas employed the skills and talent of a stable of artists who could push the design and creation of content beyond its limits.
