Hello There! I'm Nikki.

I'm a queer writer/director telling surreal female-driven stories and living in Los Angeles.

In 2015, I produced, directed, and edited the feature documentary The Melting Family. The film made its world premiere at DOC NYC, America’s largest documentary film festival.

In 2020, I released the feature film Darkness in Tenement 45, a psychological thriller that she wrote, directed, and produced. The film had an unstoppable festival run, including screenings at Big Apple FF (where it won Best Feature Film), HorrOrigins (where it won Best Feature Film and Best Director), Horrible Imaginings FF (where it received runner-up for Best Actress and Best Screenplay), Sarasota FF, Capital City FF, Heartland FF, and Terror Molins. The film sold shortly after and is currently available across VOD platforms.

Alongside my own writing and directing, I also produce and direct digital content regularly for clients such as Apple, Netflix, and Starbucks. Additionally, I have written and directed two short films.

I have also been recognized for my screenwriting. I was a semifinalist at the Academy’s Nicholl Fellowships, Creative World Awards, Finish Line, Fresh Voices, and a Second Rounder at Austin Film Festival’s script competition. I was a quarterfinalist at the PAGE, HollyShorts, Storypros, Script Pipeline, and Cynosure. I was also featured on Coverfly’s Red List and held the top 1% of screenplays on the platform. I was also one of four screenwriters selected for the 2021Cascadia International Women’s Film Festival’s Script Studio.
