I, like the word "marvel", take many forms: thinker, originator, observer, explorer. Until recently, I have only been applying these forms to one of my interests at a time. Labeling myself Marvel Nikel marks the inauguration of melding my forms and my interests into one. Marvel can take the form of verb, noun, adverb, and adjective and can mean “to wonder,” which denotes curiosity and astonishment. The former, which I possess, and the latter, which I hope to impress upon others. Nikel is my middle name, with which many people who know me are unfamiliar. With the name Marvel Nikel, I hope to present a multifaceted self at which I have always wondered but to which many have not wholly been privy.
