Early lifeEdit

Nick Damici grew up in Hell's Kitchen in the 1960s and early 1970s. His father was a bartender, and Damici would occasionally tend bar at the age of 12.[3] He is of mixed Italian and Canarian descent.


Damici's mentor is Michael Moriarty, who encouraged him to write scripts. Acting remains his primary love; in an interview, he described writing as a "lonely, thankless job".[3] After he tired of supporting roles on television shows, he decided to write starring roles for himself. Damici and Jim Mickle have worked together since 2001[4] and have collaborated on four films: Mulberry Street, Stake Land, We Are What We Are, and Cold in July.[5] Damici originally wrote Stake Land to be a web series, but Larry Fessenden was enthusiastic about making it into a feature film.[6] In February 2013, he was cast in Adrian Garcia Bogliano's Late Phases.[7]

Personal lifeEdit

Damici lives in New York City, where his girlfriend owns a bar.[3] He enjoys doo-wop bands.[4]
