Brooklyn, NY, US



I am a California-born marketing director, designer, and writer whose work primarily focuses on the application of humor, play, and color in architecture. I have a wide range of experience managing residential and commercial architecture projects, publications, and marketing campaigns. As an architect-turned-marketing professional, I translate complex, technical information into compelling stories.

My work and writing samples can be found on my website:

Cal Poly Pomona (Nicole)

Initially, I was going to name this blog "Architecture Will Kill You", but I thought better of it.

Welcome to my five-year journey in undergraduate architecture school.
