My name is Nicole. I write code for a living. I write fiction for fun. Currently, I’m employed as VP of Development at Liberty Concepts, a digital media and strategy agency in Boston, MA. Previously, I was one of the first software engineering hires at Aereo. I am a New Englander by birth but given my druthers (don’t you just love that phrase?!), I’d rather be in the mountains of Colorado or Montana working on a horse or cattle ranch. I live with an elderly rescue pug named Pugsy (no, I didn’t name him).
A wild mind. My mind is wild, for sure. I bounce off in a thousand directions at once, running down a sinewy strand of thought only to stop mid-stride, look up, and think, _This isn't what I'm supposed to do. This isn't what I want. Is it?_
The name of this site is taken from Natalie Goldberg's wonderful book---my writing bible---called _[Wild Mind: Living the Writer's Life](http://nataliegoldberg.com/books/wild-mind-living-the-writers-life/)_. I read that book once a year or so. It's my handbook for writing. And, if I'm being honest, it's not a bad handbook for life.
I am of two minds: that of logic and structure and deliberateness and one of chaos and emotion and _come-what-may_. This site is where I give free rein to both. It is where I allow my imagination to run free. It is where I kill the editor and give up the reins. It is my playground.
You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Keybase. I’m not a prolific or even steady user. Best place for updates? Right here on this site.
