Nicholas has been a professional writer for more than a decade. His work can be found on websites such as Grunge, Xoop, Cracked (humor), Glossy News (satire), Listverse, and Points in Case (humor). When Nicholas isn't pounding out words for his favorite publications, you can find him loitering in dank holes while he desperately attempts to make it through his ever-growing reading list.


Nicholas holds a dual degree in religious studies and philosophy and several certificates in the medical field. His transcripts also show a few hundred extra credits from engineering and anthropology programs that would've made his parents proud had he not fallen in love with writing about the weird and esoteric.
