20 year old Nicholas Stephen Sheppard (better known as Shep) was born on September 14, 1981 in Alton, Illinois. Raised in Catholic schools, he swam in swim teams from ages 5-18 and became a lifeguard at age 15. From there, as well as a widely popular picture, roots his mafia name of "Speedy". He got into BNL after hearing Old Apartment on the radio and finding out who sang it. Then, soon after he bought BOAPS and RS, and continued to purchase everything else in 2 weeks.
When he was 17 Shep had a sex change. Since then his long term memory stopped working. That is why he cannot recall the circumstances in which he found himself in the AIM BNL Chat. Today, he goes to school at Western IL U and is majoring in Geographic Information Systems. Although single, he has been rumoured to have an affair with fellow mafia hitman FlyGirl. In his free time Shep loves doing those internet reward programs, and going to WI or Minnesota to get cheese curds and pickle chips. He also loves Nike, hockey, Canada, Canadian hockey, hockey in Canada, hockey in Canada sponsored by Nike, and of course...monkeys. But then again, who doesn't?
