“About” Me

Hello and welcome to my official dot com ;-)

I’m Nicola (pronounced nickle-uh) and I am a freelance writer/editor in Los Angeles. I cover culture and business, usually when they collide in a new or weird way.

My writing has appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, GQ, New York Magazine, V Magazine and more. Additionally, I am a Forbes contributor and have held contract jobs with Hearst Digital Media and The Daily Beast while freelance. Previously, I was a full time writer/editor at Vox Media.

Additionally, I have experience scripting, producing and appearing in video as well as podcasts. I have also done a significant amount of work storytelling on social platforms (my favorite is Instagram Stories). I love thinking through how an audience will experience content — be it a longform article or a poignant slice of copy on social — and I’m excited to see how communication develops across all of the exciting platforms this digital era has brought us.

Behind the scenes, I have worked with a number of fashion and lifestyle brands on a host of copy and creative projects from strategy and analysis to content planning and execution.
