Independent Audio Producer
Community Arts Manager
Hi! I'm Nicki. I make radio in Richmond, Virginia.
I am trained in Audio Production through the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University (Certificate in Documentary Arts, focus in Audio expected in May 2019). Outside of my studies at Duke I am invested in developing my technical production and storytelling skills through freelance work (WVTF, NPR) as well as collaborative community projects (Visual Arts Center of Richmond, WRIR).
I am the Community Partnerships Manager at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. At VisArts I am responsible for the development of our free community programs. I manage multi-week art class and workshop offerings for diverse populations, from middle-school-aged youth to older adults and veterans.
Additionally, I am a staff writer with Whurk Magazine, the most widely distributed arts and culture magazine in Virginia.
I have been an ardent volunteer with my local community radio station, WRIR Richmond Independent Radio since 2013, where I work on the fundraising and production committees. At WRIR I have written grants, organized fundraising campaigns, and created collaborative community storytelling programs.
