She has also directed several acclaimed short films including DEBRIS, which has screened in over a dozen festivals and has been nominated for numerous awards including "Best Short Film" and "Best Director." Her short supernatural thriller, DEVIL'S DEAL, was selected as a finalist in TentSquare's Female Filmmaker Challenge. Her most recent supernatural thriller, DEATHDATE, is in post-production and will be released later this year.

She has also written on assignment for Crystal Lake Entertainment (FRIDAY THE 13TH), Kickstart Entertainment (WANTED), Cinetel Pictures (I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE), among others.
Nicole graduated from Duke University with a BA in Creative Writing and studied Screenwriting at UCLA Extension. She recently completed her Masters in Screenwriting Certification through ScreenwritingU.
