About Ni

Hey, I’m Nistuff!

I make all sorts of things… Toys, Websites, Photos, Stories, etc.

I’m almost plagued by my need to create, it’s actually an issue at times. I’ve been designing stuff since before I knew it was even considered “designing”. I’m a pretty big dreamer when it comes to projects in my life. You’ll always find me aiming for the farthest star even if I’ve only got a paper airplane to work with. But that’s enough about vague ol’ me go ahead and click the links above!

Oh yeah, and the Ni illustration to the left is by Cpresti
