Nick has over 7 years experience in the marketing industry specializing in website design. He has focused on refining his skills in the area of social media marketing working with entrepreneurs of small business startups.
Nick Roy earned his Bachelor's degree from Florida Metropolitan University - Fort Lauderdale in 1995 where he also was the starting quarterback for the football team and starting pitcher for the baseball team. He achieved the Dean's List 4 times in his college career and graduated with a 3.2 GPA. In 1997, he began his graduate studies at Hawaii Pacific University to pursue his MBA with a concentration in Marketing.
During his graduate studies, he wanted to play professional football. So he began trying out for a number of Arena Football League teams. From 1995 to 1998, he could not get passed the tryout camp. However, after elbow surgery in 1998, he tried out in 1999 for the LA Avengers and was able to make it to playing in some pre-season games. His big break ended with a career-ending knee injury which is quite common now, and has a much faster recovery time. Oh how times have changed.
He started his career as a web designer back in 1999 while rehabbing from knee surgery. He began working for the student newspaper Kalamalama at Hawaii Pacific University as their web editor. In 2008, he decided to get serious with my career and formed GMM Creative. Since relinquishing control of the day-to-day operations to a new CEO, his role now is Creative director where he oversees a team of website designers, programmers, and social media specialists.
