An activist, a humanitarian, and an icon with too many accolades to list.
Niko prefers to growl when he greets you. It’s not that he’s unfriendly; he was raised on the streets of Philly, so he’s got some grit. But don’t let his sharp teeth fool you. Niko has a big heart. Most days he finds himself helping Angela in the office and escorting her on work trips. Niko is just as passionate as Angela is about supporting LGBTQ causes… he just prefers to do it from the comfort of a velvet-lined papoose hanging from Angela’s shoulder.
When he is not devoting his time to philanthropic causes, Niko spends most of his time catching up on episodes of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, eating freshly cooked chicken out of Angela’s hand, and biting strangers who don’t respect his personal space.
