Nicole has been a filmmaker and educator in New York for the past 10 years, and she’s thrilled to be back to her west coast roots. She directed and produced the Emmy‐nominated feature documentary “Off and Running” which premiered at Tribeca, won ten international festival awards, opened theatrically in three cities and aired on the national PBS series, P.O.V. She’s currently in post-production on her second feature documentary “They Are All My Brothers” which is supported by a Fulbright Fellowship, New York State Council on the Arts and The Independent Television Service. Nicole has produced documentaries for The Discovery Channel and Here TV, and in 2009 she was selected for Filmmaker Magazine’s annual “25 New Faces of Independent Film”. A third year MFA student in Cinema, Nicole plans to teach at the college level and continue making films.
