Nick Muhart is an actor and creative based in New York City. Graduating from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, studying drama with the Stella Adler Studio, his goal is to generate work that is purposeful and inspiring. Growing up gay, he never saw himself fairly represented in movies and television. And because of this, Nick now aspires to work on projects that elevate all voices. He believes that artists need to understand all sides of the creative process. In addition to his drama background, Nick received a producing minor from NYU’s Kanbar Institute of Film and Television. Working as a producer, production assistant, and intern on multiple projects, he learned about what it takes to develop, produce, and distribute projects from the ground up. All these experiences continue to influence his journey as an actor and inform the choices he make on stage and the screen.
