Meet Nick, one half of our 2018 Summer Intern Duo! Nick has already proven to be a worthy (and tidy) MFC intern and office mate, sharing an office with Tiffany. Though we’ve only asked him to do mental backflips – we may have to see if he can do a physical backflip before the end of summer. Learn more about Nick.
