ABOUT ME

Descended from the "...West Texas Town..." of El Paso, second generation U.S. citizen Nicole Garcia is a story-teller, actress and creator whose high energy, work ethic and professionalism are notable from first impression. Garcia spent her coming of age performing as a Mariachi band vocalist, Cumbia lead singer and DJ in her hometown. Overly-ambitious and eager, Nicole relocated to Los Angeles, CA a week after her high school graduation to start her college career at AMDA College and Conservatory for the Performing Arts.
    During her time in school, she played a major role in the Artists’ Lab, working closely with composer and visual artist Michael Deragon.  She featured, directed and coached several student projects and creative workshops. After only 2 ½ years, she received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Acting in February 2019.
    Recent participations include the 13th Annual Young Artist Project by Phantom Project Theatre Group where she was cast as a director, writer and actress. The 2 week super intensive project and cast was mentioned in BroadwayWorld, Discover La Mirada and headlined the La Mirada Lamplighter Newspaper. Nicole’s original piece was staged at La Mirada Theatre. Garcia is currently represented by Artistic Talent.

Her lifetime goals include building the first performing arts school in her hometown and a visionary production house. The company would be dedicated in casting and hiring locals from the El Paso/ Ciudad Juárez region. Ultimately, creating a medium devoted to the otherworldly stories of the Mexican people, their history and culture. Multi-faceted in many avenues such as spoken word, stand up, score composing and even painting, her work greatly exhibits her home-bred, border town style.
