Nicole is an award-winning poet and filmmaker whose work captures the challenges and beauty of ordinary life. She arrived in New Orleans in 1999 from Columbus, Ohio and, though she has never looked to go back, her writing reveals she does often look back. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in film from the University of New Orleans and a Bachelor of Communications degree in video production from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Additionally, Nicole co-owns Windowsill Pies, a Southern-style pie and tart company and shares a shotgun house with her husband and young daughter.
