Nick Koumalatsos from 'Trailblazers" stars in the Discovery Channel reality series.

Nick Koumalatsos served in the Marine Corps Special Ops for twelve years where he served time in some of the remote and hostile jungles in Asia. Never to shy away from a challenge he now owns his own company where he trains police, military and militia all over the world.

Born in Hollywood, Florida, Koumalatsos spent his childhood training to be Batman and planning his next big adventure. He grew up on the move and lived in five states by the time he was twelve. This only made him more adaptable and comfortable with integrating into any environment. His teen years took a turn and were rocky to say the least. He was forced into juvenile detention at the age of twelve. After shaking his past he needed to find a new direction.

Koumalatsos joined the Marine Corps at 19 years old but not without a fight. Because of his troubled youth, he had to seek legal counsel just to be accepted. He suffered from a wrist injury within his first week of bootcamp. He spent five and a half months in basic training but graduated company honor grad. It was his perseverance through adversity that set the tone for his future and a foreshadowing of things to come.

Koumalatsos went on to become a twelve year Special Operations Marine Corps veteran with Marine Reconnaissance and Marine Special Operations Command. He has deployed in support of OIF/OEF and other places all over the world. Has trained foreign police, military, and militia in several countries.

His military career prepared him for successful leadership and strategic operational planning. He is the CEO of two successful businesses: an international training and consulting company, Survival Tactical Systems, and an adventure apparel company, Skallywag.

Koumalatsos has heart for his community first and foremost. He started The Raider Project with a mission to connect with MARSOC and other USMC combat veterans to help them transition smoothly, peacefully and successfully into the private sector. He also recently started Robin Hood Pictures to produce movies that inspire action for the veteran community. 

Koumalatsos resides in North Carolina with his two daughters and his dog Leo. He spends his free time on the water or traveling to see his family in Greece.
