We asked Nick a few questions about friendship and below are his responses:

What’s your favourite childhood memory with friends?

Riding my BMX around the local neighbourhood (Edgbaston, Birmingham, UK) with the Joseph twins. We probably didn’t travel more than 2km from home, but at the time we were on the biggest adventure of our lives! As we grew up, we skied and holidayed together, so the adventures never stopped.

What 3 words would a friend use to describe you?

Considerate, loyal, excitable. (and never wanting to miss out!)

In what ways do friends add value to your life?

They keep me grounded, remind me of the important things in life and are a non-judgmental source of support and advice.
