About

Nicole here! I'm a freelance writer and editor based in New York City who focuses on fashion, travel, food, wine, and pretty much anything else that's amusing to write about. After graduating from Pepperdine University with a bachelor's in journalism and creative writing, I started my career back in 2010 as Who What Wear's photo editor and throughout the last decade have contributed to publications including Fashionista, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, The Zoe Report, Popsugar, Fodor's Travel, and several others. I also copywrite and have worked with clients such as Frame, Sea, 3x1, Intelligentsia, and others to develop brand voices through storytelling and creative marketing. I'm very passionate about the ways we can improve our sustainability efforts in the fashion industry as well as cultivating content that's diverse and inclusive of all people. When I'm not checking out the latest restaurant opening in my West Village neighborhood or riding my bicycle along the West Side Highway, I can be found scheming my next trip somewhere around the world (up next is Vienna).
