Nick Tomchik

Hi there, 

My name is Nick and I am 18! I am an advocate for LGBT rights, the (former) Founder & Editor-in-Chief of United FM Radio, a Founder of the Commission for Student Rights, a former member of the Torrington Mayor's Committee on Youth, and the former advisor to the Superintendent of Torrington Public Schools. I am also a Skywarn spotter and amateur radio operator (KB1YIN).

I enjoy journalism, communications, broadcasting, marketing, public relations, and maritime transportation. After high school I would like to attend the Great Lakes Maritime Academy, Connecticut School of Broadcasting, or a journalism school. I joined WXedge because I love journalism. WXedge was actually my first ever freelance opportunity.

I was born and raised in Naugatuck until 2005. After that, I moved to the very unpredictable northwestern hills of Connecticut. In October of 2014, I moved out of Connecticut to pursue other opportunities in Maine. At this point, I plan to bring a little touch of northern New England to the WXedge team.
