Welcome! I'm Nicola Rinow (pronounced like Reno 911) and I am a Chicago based actor, occasional singer, educator and goofball originally from Atlanta, GA. I'm quite aware and very proud that my name is a boy's name in most countries. I'm equal parts soulful and silly.

My Story

​I grew up in a medical family that believes healing, educating, and caring for people is an art form of the highest calling. While I may not be healing folks physically, I take my work just as seriously. I believe that storytelling is one of our greatest tools to heal, educate, and care for each other spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. I am driven by an insatiable curiosity to understand others and the world around us more deeply.  

My passion for acting and storytelling led me first to Chicago, where I studied Theater at Northwestern University and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I then ventured to San Francisco for my MFA in Acting at the American Conservatory Theater with a certificate in Citizen Artistry. I am now a local hire in both Chicago and NYC.

In addition to storytelling, my greatest joys are meeting puppies on the street, traveling to new cities and reading a good book. I try to live my life and to create with joy, vulnerability, empathy, strength, fearlessness, and most importantly, a sense of humor. Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to collaborate with you.
