This digital environment is the initial stage of research for Nick Sheeran's degree project at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Nick discovered his fondness for the occult when he was feeling down, and realized he would feel way less down if people worshipped him. Nick's research in group psychology and cult history will continue for the rest of his life, but for now he has decided to entertain himself by brainstorming new cult models with the Cult Cooker. Nick is also an avid political activist, having started TDP in an effort to bring design thinking into politics, and serve the ever-thirsty egos of designers everywhere. Nick lives on a ranch in Southern California, with his 7 agendered spouses, two dogs, and 39 loving disciples.
