Apparently, I’m always in too much of a rush when printing my name. I connect the dot of the “i” and the top of the “c” in Nic and thus, a handful of people began calling me niz. It stuck as a pen name for my creative work and developed into dr_niz for online gaming to sound more intimidating. Hey, when you play competitively, you need all the help you can get! Regardless of my prior reasons, it’s wonderfully coincidental that my current aspirations in seeking a Ph.D. may legitimize my game handle.
