Nick Borzi was born and raised in Southern California, before making the arguably questionable decision to trade the sun and warmth for cold winters and an undergraduate degree at Boston University. Having majored in International Relations and minored in Economics, Nick graduated in 2018 and continued his east coast tour by taking a job at MRP Realty, a GP developer-owner based out of Washington D.C.. Nick worked there for two years as an analyst for new acquisitions and existing investments across nearly all asset types.

Fun fact, Nick was nearly recruited to the University of Hawaii for... glassblowing. He hasn't touched it since 2014, but insists that, "he will pick it up again if he ever has the time." Nick currently loves playing tennis, rock climbing, and surfing more poorly than when he had access to the outside world for more than 3 months out of the year.
