is a New York City based standup comedian, author, and speaker who enjoys “waterfront dining” seven to nine times a week in a bathtub too small to fit her. Nikki's memoir DRY RUN, released by Auctus Publishers in May 2019, is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and in select bookstores.
Nikki is an AEA member with a Bachelor of Music (Vocal Performance) from New York University and graduated top of her class from her mother’s piano studio. She’s appeared at Caroline’s on Broadway, 54 Below, Birdland, Lincoln Center, and like Vanilla Ice she’s been featured on VH1. Nikki is also a two-time MAC Award nominee and has soloed along-side Tony-Award winners, Donna McKechnie and Jerry Mitchell. That’s fancy.
When Nikki isn’t performing standup or singing show tunes, she specializes in Career Development in the eDiscovery and Litigation Technology space. If you need to read that again, I’ll wait... She’s authored articles for multiple legal outlets (ILTA, LegalTech) and has spoken at conferences around the world (American Express, ABC News) on networking, putting yourself out there, and handling rejection — a subject she knows quite a bit about and also the reason why she began eating dinners in her bathtub.
Nikki was one of 51 entrepreneurs worldwide interviewed in Sarah Centrella’s best-selling book, HUSTLE BELIEVE RECEIVE, AN 8-STEP PLAN TO CHANGING YOUR LIFE AND LIVING YOUR DREAM. She also is a career coach and speaker in residence at NYC’s Coalition for the Homeless, where she mentors women looking to re-enter the workforce. She sits on the board of directors of Women in eDiscovery, an organization that empowers women in technology, though she remains better at talking about technology than actually using it.
