Niko Palacios, Deputy Director

Originally from Seattle, with extended pit stops in Nashville, New York City and most recently Pasadena, Niko Palacios is a nomad at his core. As a former New York fashion stylist, Niko loves to use fashion and aesthetics as a catalyst to create real dialogue around identity and community. He has a B.A. in Business Administration from Belmont University and an M.A. in Theology from Fuller Seminary.  Having worked as a suicide counselor for the Trevor Project, Niko brings fresh perspective to the importance of helping all voices be heard. With his “free” time, Niko drinks copious amounts of wine, camps in the woods, and spends hours on Spotify looking for new music.
