Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, the city which Lovecraft considered nearest to being America's literary capital, Nicholas T. Kubik's young imagination was nourished by the creations of Shelly, Stoker and Lovecraft. With a writer for a mother and an engineer for a father Nick's grown to appreciate the arts as much for their spirit and truth as precision and purpose.Studying art at the Illinois Institute of Art and soon finding completion with the College of DuPage's Media Arts program Nick has served from editor to cinematographer on his many gifted friends' films as well as writer, producer and director of his own films. His on screen major film debut was in the Chicago based film Bled White (2009). Currently Nick is in pre-production on his own complement of short films, including a present day adaption of "The Whisperer in Darkness", a screenplay finalist for the 2010 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival, to be followed by a web serial to be finalized into a feature film.
