Nicole runs BB Media, the women-owned media and event company that produces Brooklyn Based, Wedding Crashers and Holistic Picnic. She began her journalism career in print media, first in the food department at the now-defunct Ladies Home Journal, then as the web editor of the now-defunct National Geographic Adventure Magazine (you can see where this is going) and finally as the arts editor of The Villager. When she began Brooklyn Based in 2007, it was the first email newsletter to cover the borough’s essential culture, events, food and travel. It remains one of the few independent online media companies in NYC.
