About: Nicole is a multidisciplinary storyteller and conscious creative, combining mediums in design, photography, art, and edit for print, digital, and social content.
As a full spectrum creative, she brings thought, relevance and forward-thinking to create new paradigms and conversations within beauty, fashion, lifestyle, and wellness; inclusivity, body positivity, strength, and self love are among some of the topics that Nicole is passionate about. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design, from the respected Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. Upon graduation, she moved to New York City and launched her career as a graphic designer, working under the tutelage of some of the magazine world’s most esteemed creative directors at publications such as YM, Cosmopolitan, and Glamour. Nicole’s discerning creative eye fueled her meteoric rise in the competitive 90s magazine industry, resulting in her becoming the Art Director of Glamour while still in her early twenties.
