Bio For General Audiences:

Nick Gray moved to New York City in 2007 with no family, very few friends, and less than stellar social skills. But Nick craved new relationships and exciting opportunities, so he began hosting cocktail parties—a move that opened up doors he never could’ve imagined.

Today he counts millionaire business owners, world class artists, and Broadway performers among a circle of friends. The network that he built helped launch his multi-million dollar business, Museum Hack. Museum Hack is a company of actors and educators who give renegade tours at some of the best museums in America, like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC and The Getty Museum in LA.

Nick has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and was called a host of “culturally significant parties” by New York Magazine. He sold Museum Hack in a unique way in 2019 for a modest seven-figure sum. Nick was named “The Best” by his mother in 2015, 2016, and 2017 (runner-up).
