Biography

Nicholson was born in San Antonio, Texas and grew up in McLean County, Illinois. After serving in the Army in post-World War II Europe, he moved to Los Angeles and took a job as a projection engineer, eventually working his way up to sound mixer. After working on feature films for Warner-Hollywood Studios [http://www.seeing-stars.com/Studios/WarnerHollywoodStudios.shtml History of Warner-Hollywood Studios] , he moved to Todd-AO/Glen Glenn in the early 1980s to do television post-production. In 1998 he began work on Dubbing stage 2 at Universal Studios. While there, aside from many other projects, he has mixed all but three of the shows in Dick Wolf's 18-year-old Law & Order franchise.

Interestingly, after moving away from full-length feature films to work in television, Nicholson's old job was taken by Kevin O'Connell, the person with the most Academy Award nominations (19) without a win.

He currently lives with his wife Barbara in Glendale, California.
