Chicago-born composer Nicole Russin-McFarland was once an 11-year year old music student pretending at home to write the scores for her movies, one who later became a 15-year old it girl in the making attending events like the VMAs and NYFW behind the scenes.
As an adult graduating early from the University of Texas at Austin as a teenager, she tried all means of networking into her ultimate goal of being a filmmaker-film score composer. Her journey took her to being signed at 21 by her first modeling agency in New York as she freelanced for The New York Daily News, foreign editions of Conde Nast titles, and other publications. Her modeling credits include Pepsi, Redken, and Laura Mercier. Facing harsh discrimination in a male-dominated industry (she once had a film score theme stolen from her and used at age 20), she had to hire herself for her first work as a filmmaker, The Eyes of Old Texas, to formally earn her dream title of film score composer. Today, Nicole Russin-McFarland is an indie sensation with her classical crossover instrumentals and other unique music releases.
