He currently resides in Washington D.C. where he works as an art teacher at the Capitol Hill Day School, teaching grades k-8.

Looking for a career in education? Nicholas Custodio’s advice:

For those interested in pursuing a career in education, don’t be afraid to start small. Consider taking a position as a teaching aide, an assistant teacher, or working as an instructor for afterschool care. It’s also helpful to narrow down your interests and have an idea of the age group and/ or subject you’d like to teach.
