She’s also built a global reputation for producing and developing creative stories for brands such as Cover Girl, Ford, McDonald’s, Gillette, and Sprite.
A proud Brooklyn-native and University of Maryland – College Park grad, Adrienne’s education coupled with her precision production abilities, allowed her to shift her focus to her own company, Adrienne Nicole Productions, in 2010. The powerhouse brand produces persuasive, genuine video content for A-list clients including Walmart, Ford, TVOne, Merck, the Arthritis Foundation and more. In addition to her Emmy nomination, Adrienne received an Achievement Award from the New York Association of Black Journalists for her work on MTV’s Growing Up Black In America. Her company snagged a Telly Award for producing a commercial for Walmart’s #FightHunger campaign.
