Nick Bicanic


A filmmaker and a technologist who mixes left brain and right brain stuff on an ongoing basis, Nick is equally at home on an MMA fighting mat, a unix command prompt, a mast-high crushing north swell, behind the controls of a helicopter, convincing a board about strategic changes of direction, field-stripping a SIG 552 Commando blind-folded or inventing new paradigms in mobile phone user interface design.

He wrote, directed and produced the 4 time LEO award winning documentary "Shadow Company" - a unique insight into the secret world of modern day soldiers for hire.

More recently - he produced "The War Against Boko Haram" for VICE News and published his first book - "Executive Outcomes" - a graphic novel based on his script of the same name.

He is also a serial entrepreneur and is considered one of the best Mobile Product visionaries in Silicon Valley.

Nick is currently a founder at RVLVR, a unique new VR/AR storytelling company.
