ABOUT NICOLE (she/her)
Nicole Machon was born and raised in Melbourne, Florida. From a young age, she gravitated towards the stage, despite the pleas to "get off", "now". Always a lover of the arts, as a child actor she is perhaps known best for her breakout performance as "Toto" in an elementary school theatre production of "The Wizard of Oz". As she got older, Nicole realized that her passions really lie in writing and directing her own films. At the expense of all those around her, she made skits on youtube, which later shifted into music videos, and then short films, and so on.
She attended the Florida State University College of Motion Picture Arts where she majored in Film Production and worked on over forty student film sets. Since graduation in 2015, she has worked in production offices and on sets of major television shows and movies such as "Mozart in the Jungle", "Wormwood", "If Beale Street Could Talk", "Ocean's Eight", "Bad Education", "On the Rocks", "The Vow", "Pose", and "The Independent".
Nicole is actively pursuing her passion of writing chaotic, offbeat comedies under the umbrella of TWO GIRLS THREE FEET, a production company she co-founded with filmmaker Jamie Rice. She currently lives in Brooklyn, and in her spare time she enjoys watching videos of miniature pigs on the Internet.
