Nick Doneff

Born and raised in Fort Erie, Ontario, Nick has always had a love for mid-century signage and amusements—neon, enamel, glass, chrome, Cogswell Cogs, jukeboxes, and pinball tables; in his own words, “The future was now, back then!”.

In 2012, he earned a Bachelor of Music Degree at Humber College where his main instrument was guitar. Nick joined Nine Yards Studio in 2018 and works in the Secret Design Bunker where he prototypes and fabricates furniture and objects. His extensive knowledge of electronics and fabrication techniques has come in handy for conquering design challenges within the Bunker. In addition to his work at Nine Yards Studio, Nick is a professional musician who writes and performs his original music, plays as a session musician for local groups, and teaches part-time at the Holland College School of Performing Arts.

Some of Nick’s interests include model railroading, retro computers, analog electronics and scratch building gadgets. Most importantly, Nick is a huge Buffalo Bills fan and rarely seen without sporting a Bills hat.
