As a Campaign Manager with CFA, Nico focuses on facilitating major fundraising campaigns from inception to completion. Nico’s multifaceted experience in fundraising, especially in higher education, makes him an asset to the CFA team and its partners.

Nico brings more than eight years of comprehensive fundraising experience to CFA. Most recently, Nico served as Project Manager for Communications and Fundraising at VISIONALITY Partners, a nonprofit consulting firm based in Ventura County, California. At VISIONALITY, Nico enhanced the annual giving strategies of clients across Santa Barbara and Ventura counties through multi-channel donor engagement, stewardship, strategy, and grant writing. He is particularly proud of overseeing three year-end campaigns that were the largest in his clients’ respective histories. 

Nico started his career as a fundraising account executive at Quimby Group Consulting in Irvine, California, where he worked with nonprofits and local government candidates across Orange County. He then joined the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs as its External Relations Coordinator, where he managed donor stewardship efforts, facilitated its year-end campaigns, and planned high-level events for donors, board members, and alumni. 

Nico is a lifelong native Southern Californian. He is a proud graduate of UCLA, where he majored in political science. He holds an MA in Theological Studies from Loyola Marymount University and a certificate in Grant Writing from the San Diego State University College of Extended Studies. 

Nico and his wife live in the Conejo Valley with their dog, Dorothy, and their cat, TT. He enjoys coffee, running and being bad at golf. He is a “hopeful, yet tortured” lifelong fan of the UCLA Bruins, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Los Angeles Chargers.
