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.
A six year tenure at Allure allowed the creative space for Nicole to create content and design across all platforms, and for the past year held the title of Design Director under Anna Wintour and Raul Martinez of Vogue, and previously Marie Suter now the Creative Director of Glossier. During this time, she was appointed the Q4 Business Accelerator Award. Those awarded with this honor have changed the trajectory of the business, driving exceptional results in print, digital, brand development and/or overall business performance.
Nicole works intuitively to pinpoint the most essential, visceral quality with which to tell a brand’s story and concepts this from start to finish, including the design. She has a strong presence on various social media platforms. Her Instagram feed @warriorheart, has nearly 7000 followers, including numerous well-known creative directors, photographers, artists, brands and cutting-edge global tastemakers.
Nicole is also a certified yoga teacher, practicing with revered yogis such as Kelly Morris, Kathryn Budig, Seane Corn, and Bryan Kest. Her exposure to this inspired her to merge visual storytelling into a creative meditation practice she calls WARRIOR HEART. THis has transformed into a mystical modality in which photographs, image manipulation, and words become messages, which can then be shared. Warrior Heart continues to be inspired by nature, color, energy, light, sacred geometry, connectivity, magic, and universal love.
