Nicholas Pardini


My name is Nick Pardini, I am a recent graduate of the University of California Santa Barbara who studied Business Economics. I host an investing podcast Wall Street University, and am the main contributor to my website, Contrarian Lifestyle ( where I write about the financial markets, sports, and travel. The sports that I primarily write about are the NBA, Major League Baseball, College Football, and college basketball. I tend to think outside the lines, and I like to investigate how sports interesects with politics, economics, and societal issues and identify how events in the sporting world affect society as a whole. My favorite sports teams are the Los Angeles Lakers, LA Angels, and UCLA basketball. Outside of media work, I like to play golf, fence, travel, and bodyboard.
