Born in St. Petersburg, Florida, Nic's family moved when he was just four years old, and has been living happily these past 32 years in the state of Alabama (with a two year diversion to Tennessee for graduate school). Dorky from birth, he's very happy to be a part of the SMG with his best man-friend Josh. They've been podcasting together since January 2010, but have been talking nerdy/dorky/geeky things since Josh was a fetus.

The Inner Dorkdom and The Clone Cast are just the latest in a long line of creative collaboration between the two. Together they've played rock-and-roll, written music, tried their hand at homebrew RPG creation, and created the no-one-has-heard-of-it-partially-because-they-only-completed-one-episode YouTube series "Toy Wars."

Professionally, Nic's work experience is, shall we say, varied. Some of his employment positions have included a video editor, a part-time preacher, an adjunct instructor of religion and philosophy at the undergraduate level, a cashier at WalMart, a substitute teacher, and a brick specialist at the LEGO Store.

He's a huge fan of Star Wars, Star Trek, Back to the Future, Indana Jones, TRON, Captain America, The Iron Giant, sci-fi in general, videogames (particularly of the Nintendo variety), film underscore, and game music. He is married, with one son. He loves his family very much, and appreciates their support in this wacky endeavor of podcasting.
