Before that, Nico was at KDHX in St. Louis since January of 2004. Within several years there, he was promoted to Co-Executive Director. He oversaw the public-facing operations of KDHX, managing programming, development, marketing and community outreach.

Prior to KDHX, Nico did strategic planning and outcomes-based evaluation for the St. Louis Children's Agenda, a collaborative network of non-profits, government agencies and businesses focused on child, family and maternal health in St. Louis. Before moving to St. Louis, he worked in a research group of Human Code, a digital media company based out of Austin, Texas.
Nico served as a board member with several St. Louis-area non-profit organizations, including the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group and the Folk School of St. Louis.
