Growing up in a military family, Nicol Eilers was constantly on the move. She lived all over Europe and the United States before landing as a teenager in Phoenix, Arizona. Nicol has been intrigued with film since she was in high school, which developed from her storytelling through photography and acting. She first began making films at the University of Arizona when she transferred from Theatre into the Media Arts Program. Nicol’s writing is greatly influenced by technology news, where she finds inspiration from non-fiction books, articles, and blogs. Themes near to her heart are the human experience, class, and the environment.
