Nick Berry was born and raised in Paris, France. He started hunting with his dad when he was 3 and shot his first birds at the age of 6. He has been hunting birds and bigger game his whole life on different continents. Nick mainly developed his competitive spirit when playing rugby at a national level from the age of 10 to 30. He has had multiple achievements in this sport, but bad and recurrent injuries forced him to move away from rugby.

After studying two master’s in architecture and civil engineering in France, Nick set up a design firm with offices in Europe and in Asia in 2005 and developed them into a very successful company with 80 architects and engineers within a two-year timeline. Hundreds of projects have now been designed and built by his company that he still partly owns. Moving back to France, he started shooting sporting clays in 2014 and studied all the aspects of this sport (physical, technical, and mental) to become one of the top shooters and instructors. After relocating to California in 2016, Nick worked as Director of Operations in North America for Laporte before taking care of the distribution of World class shooting brands under Little Trapper’s umbrella. Since June 2022, Nick and his wife Cat own and run Rock Creek Shooting Club near Boise Idaho.
