Her sci-fi spec screenplays have earned the notice of industry titans with a Semi-finalist placement in Screencraft’s 2016 Cinematic Short Story Contest, and Quarterfinalist placement in Screencraft’s 2017 Screenwriting Fellowship Contest.

Nicole recently moved cross-country from the D.C. area to Issaquah, Washington and found that she enjoys the rain. Now that she’s sold her marketing agency, Nicole spends her hours writing, raising two sons with her partner, watching Doctor Who, and staring at the ceiling.
Now that she’s sold her marketing agency, Nicole centers her life around family and writing. She recently moved cross-country from the D.C. area to a suburb of Seattle, and finds that she enjoys the rain. Happiest near the water, Nicole spends her hours plotting her next escape, writing the next screenplay, watching Doctor Who, and staring at the ceiling.
As a black woman raised near poverty just outside Washington, D.C. now living in the upper middle class suburbs of Seattle and in an interracial marriage, I’ve had countless discussions on and experienced multiple examples of “what’s wrong with our society.” One problem is that few people are willing to truly listen to anyone outside of their bubble. With my writing, I hope to get people from many backgrounds talking about our differences, how recognizing those differences is essential to understanding a person’s point of view, and how little those differences impact character.
