Nick has a rather “eclectic” background.  With a B.A. in English Literature from National Dong Hwa University (Taiwan), he then obtained a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling Psychology from Boston College in 2004 and then PhD in Cultural Studies with an emphasis on Film & Media at The Claremont Colleges (suburban Los Angeles), focusing on film criticism and audience psychology.  His research revolves around how the audience “decodes” (interprets) messages that a movie is intended to convey and how a film company may package its product with what the audience is looking for taken into account.

Taking up the quill at an early age, Nick initially wanted to be a novelist.  A personal congratulation from an award-winning director on his radio drama in college triggered him to write for another medium.  He has worked with Zahra Pictures as a screenwriter and has an action espionage short currently in post-production.  One of his scripts was selected as a finalist at The Annual Lone Star Action Fest Screenplay Competition sponsored and operated by industry professionals.
Aside from his love for creative writing, Nick has been playing the piano ever since he was 4, along with a few other instruments, which he took up in his teens.  He started improvising at the age of 5 and composes when he has time.  One of his piano solo pieces was used by a mountain resort for its promotional website as background soundtrack.
