Areas of Research Interest, Writings and Teaching
Music has always been a part of Nick's life, and has led to extensive experience in professional and church music performance.  Technology has also been a large part of his interest, beginning with science fiction reading as a young person, radio technician training and service in the US Army for three years, and the use of computers in mission work in general.  He introduced ICI to the Internet in 1991-1992, making several presentations to the ICI Board of Administration to convince them of the need to invest in this technology for distance learning.  If he were to have a hobby, he would like to set up an online gaming network with old, discarded pcs in one room of his home for friends to enjoy.  If he were able one day to retire, his dream would be to return full time to school to study whatever would be of current interest to him, starting with philosophy, theology, religion, psychology and sociology, to answer questions about two areas:  human motivation and reality perception and how they relate to the gospel's teaching on reality.  Because he grew up in a multi-cultural dysfunctional family setting in Hawaii, he would like to compare the gospel's teaching on reality with that taught by American Indian, African, Chinese, and American-European cultural values.
Family and Personal Interests
Ruth and Nick have three grown children:  Heather, Jonathan, and Joel.  Jonathan and wife Sarah have a daughter, Elisabeth Rose (Lily).  Joel and wife Leah have a daughter, Siena Justiss.  Nick and Ruth used to have many different interests such as music, reading, sewing, and the like.  Lately, however, their interests have settled to just two - Siena and Lily.
