Creator, Illustrator, and Head Writer - Nick Berget
Nick Berget is an engineer, entrepreneur, and amateur cartoonist. He was born and spent most of his life in Southcentral Alaska, and even though he's traveled extensively and lived a number of places it remains his one true home. Working a number of years as a systems engineer for large aerospace & defense companies, in late 2016 he left the corporate rat race with what remained of his sanity in the desire to travel the world and try his hand at entrepreneurship and indulge in hobbies such as creating comic strips. Possessing a fascination with comic strips since childhood, he started Nerd By Northwest from a combination of strange ideas, inspiration from even stranger friends, a handful of roughly drawn strips, and the various absurdities of these crazy times we live in.
