I was born on September 3, 1981 in Madison, Wisconsin as Nicholas Haas. Having little money and being scared of my shadow eventually motivated me to become confident and successful. I have worked well over 100 different jobs starting with newspaper delivery and farm work from an early age. I would work before school and play sports after. I lettered four times in wrestling and was captain of my wrestling team my senior year. After graduating high school, I attended college for a year in Wisconsin and continued my wrestling career. I ran out of the little money I had, left college and almost lost myself by partying my life away. I decided I needed to get away, and fast. I Joined the Air Force for a four-year-tour so I would receive the GI Bill to have the rest of my college paid for. I was an Air Force Marksman and passed all of the tests to become Air Force special ops but I decided to transfer into a job where I was able to attend college full-time.
In 2005, I graduated college with a bachelor degree in English and a minor in Journalism, I left the Air Force, moved to southern California and started my first company, Explicit Strippers. I put on multiple successful male revue productions while booking male and female strippers for private parties and clubs. In 2008, I was on the cover of Men's Health UK. I studied acting, auditioning and improv full-time in Los Angeles from 2006-2010, while booking small TV and movie roles.
I made the switch from being a stripper to a gigolo in 2009, when Garren James with Cowboys4Angels.com recruited me. A year later, I was approached by the Showtime series Gigolos and I have starred in every episode of all six seasons. In 2013, I released my Nick Hawk Gigolo sex toy line which includes a dildo from my molded penis, a sex position book and over 20 other items.
My baby, that I spent much of my life creating, Nick Hawk's 100 Kicks In The Ass: A Guide To Gaining Confidence & Reaching Your Full Potential is now available. I get messages, almost daily, of all the people it is helping including, parents and their kids! Those are my favorite messages. When I hear I help someone help their child with confidence, I tear up. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into it and it's paying off. I'm currently working on So You Really Wanna Be A Gigolo?! and Nick Hawk's 50 Kicks In The Ass: A Guide To Sex, Dating & Relationships. I'm also taking classes and pursuing a Psychology PhD. In 2015, I spoke at the World Pick-Up Artist Summit, The Global Seduction, Lifestyle and Relationship Conference and Hustler Magazine labeled me as "Confidence Man." I now offer confidence/life coaching sessions, which I now call "Wake The Fu*k Up" sessions, that I very much enjoy, through in-person, email, Skype and over the phone.
I stay busy, to say the least; I promote healthy lifestyles and positivity. In my little free time, I enjoy working out, working on my music, traveling the world, the outdoors, hiking with my dogs, snowboarding, wakeboarding and surfing. I've been training in MMA for over 20 years. In 2014, I won the no-gi IBJFF World Championship as a purple belt. In 2016, I won the IBJFF American National Championship open weight brown belt division. I'm a three time NAGA Champion in the expert division, and recently I won the 2017 Pan American Championship, receiving my black belt on the podium by my professor Robert Drysdale. I will always get the most enjoyment, fulfillment and satisfaction exploring my creative side. I will continually create new innovative and original music. Finally, I've brought on a new Theatrical Manager to explore my acting craft, which I feel I have perfected, to add the only thing I felt was missing from my life.
