About Nicki

Nicki3-web small

My name, if you haven’t guessed already, is Nicki Hicks.

Originally from the great state of Maryland and the edge of the Bible belt, I became a transplant to Wayne, Maine where I spent the end of my high school years. Then for college, I traveled to Sebago Lake, where I attended Saint Joseph’s College of Maine and graduated with a BS in Business specializing Marketing and Advertising.

Lucky for me, I landed a killer job at flyte new media, a web design and web marketing company in Portland, Maine. Between 2008 and 2011, I spent my time with things like working tirelessly to improve the house I bought (crap, that was my Dad; I’m the one who tried to help out) and I also coached for two years for the Saint Joseph’s College Cheerleading squad.

In early 2011, I decided since I was young and single, I needed to spread my wings. So I chose St. Augustine, Florida, where my best friend had already lived for a year. I started by working full time from home (I’ve decided I’m the luckiest person alive) and also got a gig coaching cheerleading at Flagler College with my best friend.

At the beginning of 2013, I went for it along with my brother and we started our own business, red vine web studio. There, I do what I love: help people and business succeed online. In my spare time, I’m also a self-proclaimed yogini, wannabe artist, semi-granola, puppy momma, wine lover, and eternal optimist.

For more tidbits about life’s scrumptious delights, stay tuned! You can also follow me on Twitter for 140 character sound bites or on Instagram for some square snapshots of whatever I feel like photographing.

About this blog

While my main interest lies in web marketing (and you can read all about that over at the red vine blog), I have what I would call a very eclectic taste for many other areas. So that’s what this blog is for: essentially a catch all for things that interest and intrigue me (and hopefully you, too) and a space to discuss a number of topics, including (but certainly not limited to):
