Nick earned his Master’s in creative writing at The City College of New York, where his studies of Latinx magic realist and African-American literatures began. And he started work on his first novel, The Emergent. Since then, he has lived and worked in his native California, as well as South Korea, Illinois, and Texas. Throughout all of this, he has experimented with content, form, and function on this website and in the novel.

He now resides in Des Moines, where he is currently at work on his next project, a novella that takes place during a global plague. He also has an outline and several sketches for his next full-length novel, a tale of expat misadventures in South Korea, tentatively titled American Dog-baby (미국 개 아기).
