When Nicole launched Brooklyn Based in 2007, she had worked primarily as a writer, researcher and reporter for magazines like National Geographic Adventure and as the arts editor of the beloved NYC weekly, The Villager. In the process of running an indie media company, though, she's added a few other roles to her skill set, like event producer, publicist, and ad sales. She's lived in Park Slope, Gowanus, Clinton Hill, Dumbo, and Greenpoint, and now lives in Hipsturbia with her husband, daughter, son, dog and two cats. (You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can't keep her away from her work.) She's on Twitter at @nicolebdavis, but mainly uses her account to harass airlines.
