Hey there! My name is Nicholas Cavallo and thank you for checking out my portfolio website!
Born and raised in the small state of Connecticut, I moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in pursuit of better opportunities and a new adventure.
Having just finished my first semester at British Columbia Institute of Technology for Broadcasting and Online Journalism, I’ve learned a lot over the past few months with at least a year and a half to still go. I knew that Journalism was something I wanted to do for a while, but I tried other ventures first such studying music and acting at Naugatuck Valley Community College. I have a massive interest in all things music, movies, as well as video games and eSports.
Despite my lack of experience with Journalism, I’ve been a writer for years. From blog posts to reviews, I’ve spent a lot of my time honing my craft when it comes to telling the public my thoughts, experiences, and opinions. I spent over 5 years on Youtube being a ‘Let’s Player’, playing through games and talking about it as I go from start to finish, earning over a thousand subscribers and meeting some amazing people who have become my friends along the way. I have a massive passion for writing and expressing myself and gaming with journalism helps me through that. I get to tell stories, my own or other people’s, as well as inform my audience on the true facts and nature surrounding critical topics in the industry.
The rise of eSports has also been a massive influence on my decision to become a Journalist. I joined a competitive gaming community a few years ago and began writing for their news teams spanning from doing reviews, to doing in-depth reflections on the history of series of games. I’ve even been approached by PR companies so that they may quote my article on upcoming games.
Outside of gaming and journalism, I enjoy listening to music, watching movies, and spending time with my friends.
