Chilean-American actor/writer/producer Nick Puga was raised in Miami, FL where he studied acting at Florida International University and New World School of the Arts. Nick's first break came shortly after moving to Los Angeles when after a nationwide search he was cast to co-star with Christina Aguilera in a bilingual Coca-Cola ad campaign. He then turned heads with his dramatic portrayal of Tommy in the award-winning short Eating, which premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. His film credits include Steven Spielberg's The Terminal and Steven Soderburgh's Oceans 13, and he has appeared on hit television shows such as Fox's House, ABC's Apartment 23 and CW's Veronica Mars.
Nick's versatility has allowed him to be involved in a variety of projects: he garnered attention with his comedic music video PPL B TXT'N 2MUCH, which caught the eye of MTV execs and won several awards on the short film festival circuit, he lends his voice to the Adult Swim series Minoriteam, and has worked as a producer on four episodes of MTV's Emmy Award winning series True Life. Nick has also enjoyed success as a commercial actor; he has starred in several high profile Super Bowl ads and major national campaigns alongside the likes of Dennis Haysbert, T-Pain, Glenn Dorsey, Nick Price, Bear Grylls and Jon Lovitz. Most recently, Nick finished work on an episode of the CBS series NCIS: Los Angeles and has also finished principal photography in the independent feature film After the Wedding.
