Nick Rolph was raised by a traveling pack of French gypsies. At age eight he was taken in by Trina and Mike who found him during a trip to Versailles, and though his transistion to civilization in Fresno was smooth, Nick's time spent carousing with socialists and smoking Gauloises on the outskirts of Paris left a peculiar impression on the child. For instance, the gypsies loved palindromes. Nick's first word was kayak, and his fondness for palindromic words extended into his art, giving it a pleasant duality.
While in France, Nick developed an affinity for both cheese and cheese puns. Though the influence of cheese itself is obvious in his work now, the subtle effect of cheese puns has ensured that his work will always brie willing to have a sense of humor. Mike and Trina nurtured Nick's early love for soccer. He found success playing outside right mid on every level even though some people thought he was a more natural forward and that if Coach Campbell had played Nick up top more that it would have allowed for his good friend Brian to spend more time on the field and maybe Brian could have gotten a soccer scholarship and wouldn't be sitting on a pile of student loans. Regardless, Nick has used his athletic background to find creative ways to apply art to the realm of sports, bridging the gap between seemingly separate realms of society. Nick is currently applying his diverse background at Box as a UI Designer, working every day to further assimilate into a non-gypsy civilization.
