After receiving a BFA in the Performing Arts at Montclair State University, this Jersey girl went on to a yearlong acting Apprenticeship program with Actors Theatre of Louisville, in Kentucky. She then completed her graduate studies at Harvard University, in a conservatory program with The American Repertory Theatre Company. Pounding the pavement from New York City to Los Angeles for 20+ years was an invigorating adventure and a school of absolute inspiration.
Nicolette officially started writing in 2003 and has penned 17 titles including two full-length plays, many one-acts, a handful of ten-minute plays, and her first novel (read the first chapter here). She is now delving into the short story and poetry. All of her writing includes inspirational or meaningful themes (under all the drama) illuminating the human condition – all with the hope her stories inspire someone to a better life.
Along with her performing arts training and script analysis studies, she studied playwriting at UCLA Extension, playwriting and advanced playwriting, and creative writing at the Lighthouse Creative Writing Workshop in Denver, and with Creative Rites in Los Angeles. Many of her plays have been produced, workshopped, or have received a professional staged reading in various cities.
Nicolette is an artist… a multiple award-winning playwright, a novelist, a professional theatre director, acting coach for actors and entrepreneurs, an online course / video campaign creator, and has performed in over 100 stage plays, numerous commercials, TV shows, and independent films.
She lives, loves, plays, and creates in Denver, Colorado.
