Hello! My name is Nicole Friedberg, but I will also respond to Nikki, or if your voice sounds like my mother’s, Hershey, or Scout (my dogs’ names).

I’m a writer and actor who identifies as a nerd and an old soul. Above all else, I am a storyteller. I believe that telling stories — whether fictional or true — is how humans can affect change and start important conversations.

As a storyteller, my mission is to provide people with escapes, new ways to look at the world, and provide connection that makes them feel seen and less alone. Art is one of the biggest influences on the world and my life’s purpose is to be an artist who wields that power to make the world a better place.

I was born and raised for most of my life in a teeny tiny northern New Jersey town, where I first fell in love with performance through school plays.

When I was 13, my family relocated to a suburb of Atlanta, GA, where I found comfort from my new surroundings in writing assignments and at a local acting studio where I took classes in on-camera acting.

I am now a recent college grad with a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and a double minor in French language and theatre arts. My next stops are LA and London, where I will spend my first and second years, respectively, as part of Oklahoma City University’s inaugural class for their MFA in Screen Acting program, which was created, in part, by OCU alum Kristin Chenoweth.

I’m so excited and grateful to have you on this journey with me!
