What does going beyond look like?  For me, it's naming the ways I've been complicit in enforcing white supremacist values in my theatre career; as student, educator, actor and director and then deciding to be purposeful in seeking knowledge from those whose contributions to theatre have been minimized, discounted, appropriated, and ignored.  Beyond is discovering how theatre can be diverse, innovative, and exciting for ALL.

About Me & My Workshops


About Me

My work exposes the shape-shifting quality of racism in theater, and provides a framework for theater organizational culture to transform to fully inclusive and anti-racist through the use of conscientious theatre training. 

I believe unceasingly that our collective liberation is tied to one another and the way forward is together.   

Naming Impact

She reminded me how 

powerful movement is for

 actor/character  development.

Working with Nicole is an absolute 

blast! Her wit, creativity, and

 passion are only surpassed by 

her kindness! 

Every room she walks into is 

immediately brightened.

The world needs more people like Nicole; those who uplift the people they encounter, who identify injustice and seek to remedy it, and who are humble and always seeking to better themselves so they can be better for those they serve.
