I'm Nick DeLeon and I'm a first year strategist at the VCU Brandcenter. I love the thrill of uncovering something new, and strategy provides me with that thrill on a daily basis. 

I love working with my hands. Whether it's building a bench out of wood, crafting something out of leather, or fixing one of the many problems that pop up in my 109 year old house, the satisfaction of completing these projects is one of life's simple pleasures. 

Three Things to Know About Me

I spent 15 years as a competitive swimmer. It required teamwork, focus, and dedication. While I may not have realized it during my swimming career, these skills have shaped me into the strategic thinker I am today.

I have a twin sister named Alyssa. Despite the myths out there, we can't read each other's minds. We did have some pretty sweet Halloween costumes though.
