Nicole received a Bachelor of Fine Arts 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 artist, 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 mastery of graphic design and typography fueled her meteoric rise in the competitive magazine industry, resulting in her becoming the Art Director of Glamour while still in her twenties. Later, while taking a hiatus to have her two sons, Nicole became a certified yoga instructor, practicing with revered yogis David Swenson, Bryan Kest, Kelly Morris, and Seane Corn. Her exposure to that mindful, intention-based field inspired Nicole to architect a new career that would marry her divergent passions—graphic arts, yoga, spirituality, styling, photography, and interior design. The actualization: In 2010, Nicole founded WARRIOR HEART, a studio specializing in web design, style direction, and brand consultation. She is an expert at unearthing, conceptualizing, and creating images that lend a unique visual voice to the sites of the artists, photographers, and authors she works with. In her unending pursuit of personal and professional evolution, Nicole has continued to expand her skill set and explore emerging creative outlets. She has a strong presence on various social media platforms, and each is informed by her special blend of bohemian modernism.
