Who, Me?

*halo emoji*

If the goal of this website is to sell ME to YOU as a PRODUCT, I think you deserve a look behind the scenes.

I can spin alllllll the way around!

01   _OVERVIEW


I’m Nick! Affectionately, I’m Nicky. Physically, I'm a 5’10” male with glasses, a gap-toothed smile, and a lean build. Emotionally, I’m a placid lake protected by a serene forest — rarely is my surface disturbed. Academically, I’m a dedicated life-long learner, a porous sponge absorbing everything in reach. Socially, I teeter between extroversion and introversion, and I don’t much care to take a Meyers-Briggs test and put myself in a box. Philosophically, I consider myself an absurd existentialist — aware of the universe’s indifference towards me, and happy to create and pursue my own meaning of life. Gradually, I'm discovering that “who I am” is a fluid concept, impossible to pin down in a paragraph, or ten paragraphs, as my body and mind grow and change with each passing day.
