Nicholas Peter Owen Williams
I am currently enrolled in the School of Policy Planning and Development at the University of Southern California studying Public Policy.
I am a transplant to Los Angeles by way of New York. I reside in Hollywood with my wife and golden retriever.
Prior to enrolling as a master’s student at SPPD, I worked in the private, public and non-profit sectors.
