He is an active volunteer, working with the Weirdbeard Theatre Troupe, Christmas Daddies, Transition House, and the Southend Community Centre to name a few.
Nigel combined his accumulated skills, resources and associates and launched his new company N Kearns Event & Project Solutions to provide consulting, design and management in all areas from small to large events and projects. He is most passionate about working with like-minded people and organizations to take the Cape Breton community to new heights.
Nigel left Australia with his family at the age of six and the Kearns moved all over the world, living in England, then Scotland, then to Ontario Canada. Eleven years later, after a vacation to Cape Breton, they chose to finally settle in Big Bras d’Or.
After a two-year period of Canadian culture shock, Nigel joined the Navy and served, sailed the seas, and visited ports of call for five years. Upon returning to Cape Breton and growing back his hair, he honed his newly-acquired party skills and entered the entertainment industry. Nigel fell in love with the people and the music of Cape Breton and has fought ever since to live and work on the island. Nigel resides in Sydney with his son Max and stepson Liam.
