In 2005 when I started my first full-time job as county editor at the Marengo Pioneer-Republican in my home state of Iowa my boss gave me my own weekly column, which he titled, “In the Nick of Time.”

Eventually I would replace my boss as editor-in-chief of NEWSpapers of Iowa County before leaving for Philadelphia, PA in 2010. It was then that I launched this blog to keep my readers in Iowa up-to-date with my comings and goings and total random thoughts.

Since then I lived  Tokyo, Japan, for nearly a decade, where I was editor-in-chief of Tokyo Weekender magazine. I now reside in Singapore, where I am a stay-at-home dad with too much time to once again update this blog with mostly useless articles meant only to humor myself.

  1. Hi Nick, I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts. My family is about to move to Tokyo for a 2 year assignment at the end of December, and I stumbled into your blog while looking for Disc Golf courses in Tokyo.

    Got hooked on the golf post then moved on to several of the hiking entries… all pursuits I hope to be following once we get there.

    Thanks for the humor and insight.
