As a performer, writer, and director, Nick Benoit has spearheaded artistic projects and teams for more than 15 years, producing work that blends filmmaking, live performance, and storytelling. His work has reached hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Most recently, Nick served as the creative director of Willow Creek Community Church in the Chicago area, where he spent the past six years conceiving and producing unique artistic expressions to inspire, move, and mobilize diverse audiences toward introspection and action.
Today, Nick is the co-founder and creative director of Bravingbird, a nonprofit dedicated to sharing messages that matter. Bravingbird tells powerful stories with truths attached, stories rooted in the themes of the gospel and that carry messages with the power to reshape personal lives, relationships, and whole communities.
Nick lives in the suburbs of Chicago with his wife and three kids, and his proudest achievement of late is finding a decent cup of coffee (and donuts) within walking distance of his office.
