NICK NORTH

Nick North is a dude, a husband, a dad to 5 kids and a Branding Strategist. He also has a history of living as a woman, a wife, a mom, a photographer and even an EMR. When he embraced his identity and came out as transgender, he realized just how much gender affects the way we think, talk, sell and function. He now speaks from his experience on both sides of the gender coin, empowering men and women to live authentically and powerfully, while also making more money following their passion and their gut. You can find him at www.nicknorth.co or sharing many a topless photo and big feelings on Instagram @epicdanger.

NICK AND KATHERINE JOINT BIO

IMAGE BY DANA PUGH

IMAGE BY DANA PUGH

Katherine was a cynic who didn't even believe in true love...until she accidentally fell in love at almost 40-years-old with her best friend, Nick.

But when they fell in love, he wasn't "Nick"... he was "Nikki." And, Nikki was pregnant with baby #4!

Assigned female at birth, Nick always knew deep down he was a man trapped in a woman's body. A stay-at-home pregnant mom and family photographer who didn’t think life could ever be any different, he was stuck in a life that should have made him happy but wasn’t his own.

Together, they navigated Nick's transition from female to male as a couple and as parents and as business owners.

They negotiated the challenges of transitioning while blending a family and keeping their businesses afloat. They continue maneuvering through marriage, parenting five kids, nontraditional gender roles (who pays the bills and does the dishes?,) and so much more.

With true stories, embarrassing anecdotes, and practical advice, Nick and Katherine show their audience and clients how to start taking brave steps in their own lives, wherever they are starting.

Nick and Katherine recently received a grant from Storyhive to create a documentary film about their family called “Just Another Beautiful Family” and are developing the "Beautiful Families" project which will include a conference, podcast, and supportive online community for all sorts of nontraditional families. They have appeared on numerous stages and media outlets.
