Nicholas F. Veltri
Born in Italy, Nicholas immigrated to Canada as a young child and has been a life long resident of Thunder Bay ever since.
Nicholas attended Port Arthur Collegiate Institute, Lakehead University and Confederation College where he obtained a diploma in Civil Eng. and Technology. He worked as a Technologist for various local firms but the most challenging and rewarding for Nick was his 14 years with CP Rail Engineering. This was concluded with 11 years with CP Rail (Operating) where I was a Train Man (Switchman).
At the young age of 55, Nick retired and took on one of his many passions which is photography. Photography has allowed him to express his creativity and love of the world. Nick has always been in awe of the beauty in nature and amazed by its diversity.
Nick is currently active in slow pitch baseball, golf, pool and fishing. Other hobbies include wood working/carving, drawing, ice hockey. He has also attempted painting and creative writing. All in all, Nicholas loves life and has tried many of the great things it has to offer.
