Founder and CEO of three companies July Six Entertainment, O-Live! Theatre and The Church Stars Network, Nicole Newman has been producing digital tv shows, musicals, stage plays, and directing some 25 years.
Introduced to the arts as a child growing up in her parent's church who have pastored in Phoenix, AZ over 40 years, Nicole was overseer of the Drama Arts department as a teenager, producing stage plays and choreographing dance routines. Also involved in her community, from ages 16-25 she served her local church as Youth Activity Director which ultimately led to her peers voting her Youth Activity Director for the Mountain States Council Youth of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, she went on the serve on the national level in the same capacity for the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc. Nicole has literally lived and breathed the arts all of her life.
A performing arts aficionado, Newman soon realized that while her passion for the arts took her to many interesting places, the Christian arts community offered little if anything on the scale she experienced in her travels. In 2010, Nicole followed up a successful advertising and marketing career at the largest newspaper in Phoenix (The Arizona Republic) and went full-time in the Christian Arts and Entertainment industry.
