Nikki is a first generation Ghanaian-American born and raised in Maryland. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in April 2015 with a BA in Communication Rhetoric and minor in Film Studies.
Despite her love-hate relationship with Pittsburgh, “the steel city” allowed her to develop her passion for creating captivating, influential, and genuine human-interest stories.
This past year Nikki worked as an Associate Producer at Catalyst Films for Emmy nominated Director/Producer Kristi Jacobson. Before this, she was a Production Assistant with Part 2 Pictures for Season 3 of This is Life with Lisa Ling. She also interned with Doctors Without Borders and Pittsburgh’s NPR Station: 90.5 WESA.
Through media she aims to save the world, if not make it a little less broken.
