Started life out as Marc of Slipstream (Marc being his real name).
He quit Slipstream to then join Scoopex, and changed his handle to N.O.M.A.D., there is nothing special about the name, just that he had the idea to use the full stops just to be different.
After Scoopex he went and helped to create Genesis, which eventually evolved in Crystal. After Crystal, he joined Quartex for a brief spell, and then helped to create Nemesis, which then turned into Ministry. After that, N.O.M.A.D. finished off his time in Fairlight.
