Born Nicholas Angue Sloan to John Angue Sloan, stockbroker, and Gretel R. Sloan, German model, Nick came into show business at the young age of 4. He first appeared as a runway model for children's clothing in Florida and in a TV commercial for Tampa Electric. As his father enjoyed the stage in Clearwater's Little Theatre along side character actor Charles Napier, and his mother had been a top model in Berlin, Germany, both parents encourage Nick to follow the path of show business. It wasn't until after graduating high school that the acting bug came. Through a friend, Nick found his way to an agent and acting classes with Kathy Laughlin acting studio in Tampa, Florida. At the acting studio, he became friends and acted with 'Gary Daniels' He loved acting so much that he dropped out of college to pursue his newfound dream. Through numerous grueling round trip drives from Tampa to Miami for countless auditions, Nick landed TV commercials for companies such as Publix Supermarkets, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and even a MasterCard commercial with Jackie Gleason. He even landed small parts in the made for HBO movie _Long Gone_ ( 1987) and the comedy _Summer Rental_ (1985). At 21 years of age and SAG card in hand; Nick made the cross-country journey to Hollywood. After a year of rejection and bad luck, Nick headed back to Florida to re-group. During this rejuvenating year, Nick was a stand-in for Don Johnson on Miami Vice, did several more TV commercials including a national for McDonalds, and won a small role in the horror movie _Phantom of the Ritz_ (1992) . This along with a bit of modeling work gave Nick the energy needed for another trip back to Hollywood. This second trip to Hollywood was filled with studying at the Beverly Hills Playhouse, miles and miles of mountain bike riding, wave after of wave of surfing from Ventura County to K-38 in Baja, Mexico, and hundreds of rejections. At 25, Nick decided to pack it up, give up his dream of acting, and headed back to University.

Nick spent about 2 years in the far east of Russia as an English teacher. He managed to become quite fluent in Russia, but stayed away from acting. After a short return to the USA, Nick headed to Japan to travel and have a bit of a working holiday. He continued working as an English teacher, but the show business bug came back to bite. In 2000, Nick was one of the first radio DJ'S at the new Radio station, Radio-i. This was just the beginning of a prosperous career in Japan.
