Nick Hoeger: Contributing Author

Nick's name is, in fact, "Nick."  But for his own privacy, the name he's given is merely a portion of his real first name, which will not be divulged due to copyright reasons and for your own safety.  Nick resides in, but is not demographically "from," Iowa City, Iowa.  He owns a motorcycle and participates in numerous activities and events.  Sometimes these events include, but are not limited to, times that are in the nature of being fun.

Nick graduated from the University of Iowa with Bachelor's of Awesomeness in Psychology and Religious Studies.  Nick liked the University and Iowa City so much that he still lives there, working as a Research Assistant in the College of Public Health.  Nick likes the Iowa Hawkeyes, whiskey, beer, and making fun of Tom. He doesn't like one-sided ignorance, nor bees, even though we're all dead if they go extinct.
