She also studied Shakespeare in London at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and performed at RADA in Henry V. Nicole made her Off-Broadway debut playing "Amelia" in Lilia Rubin's new play "The Fall."
Nicole grew up as a dancer and always wanted to be a classical ballerina before falling in love with theatre. She studied ballet, tap, and jazz, as well as acting and classical voice, extensively in her youth. She also attended Interlochen Center for the Art's summer musical theatre program before being accepted to NYU. Nicole still loves to dance and takes classes at Broadway Dance Center and Peridance in NYC.
Though she has lived all over the country including both Northern and Southern California, and Texas, Nicole considers Honolulu, Hawai'i her hometown. When she isn't performing, she spends as much time outside as possible. She loves to hike, do yoga, swim, and store Vitamin D for the cold New York winter by laying in any available patch of grass. She also loves to "instastory", mostly for her own amusement.
