About the Artist

Combining life-long passions for astronomy and visual arts, Nahks is a multimedia specialist for the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at The Pennsylvania State University. His primary interests are astrobiology and human space exploration, and he aims to share those through science communication — art, writing, education & public outreach, ... and most recently, video games. Nahks trains in Kokikai-ryu Aikido with the Penn State Aikido Club and studies Urasenke-style Japanese tea ceremony through the Penn State Tea Institute. He also practices a bit of classic East-Asian inkbrush painting and calligraphy, among other medieval-recreation activities related to being a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism. He's kind of a sci-fi/fantasy geek in general, who's also into a lot of tabletop and computer gaming.
