Nicole’s professional career began as a producer/director at a local cable company in Detroit. There she honed her skills culminating in a national Cable ACE nomination and a local Cable ICE Award win. She transitioned from cable to the greener pastures of film production by producing and directing the short films The Stop and minor blues. The success of these films helped establish her as a burgeoning filmmaker on Detroit’s independent filmmaking scene. Nicole’s other credits include writer/director/producer on the collaborative feature film The Owner, where she joined forces with 25 filmmakers from 13 countries to produce/direct the first international feature film of its kind.

Shot entirely in the Bahamas, Cargo has played at numerous film festivals winning several awards including the Amnesty International Human Rights Prize for film.
