Nicholas de Wolff


A passionate advocate for long-term business growth driven by innovation, community, and IP development, Nicholas de Wolff has served as an advisor and mentor to individuals, corporations, non-profits, and governments around the world.


Nicholas has developed ground-breaking campaigns for clients including Disney, the Jim Henson Company, Lexus, Intel, and Sony. Founder of City Arts Project, the world’s first 3D online arts community; former Chief Marketing Officer at Technicolor; co-founder of the Producers Guild of America’s New Media Council, Founding Chair of the NFFTY Advisory Board – Nicholas was inducted in to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences 20 years ago, and has served on the Jury for both the Emmy Awards and College Television Awards for a number of years.


Nicholas has advised and worked with a number of game industry brands, including Activision, LucasArts, the IGDA, and Indiecade. He spends far too much time on Twitter (@usdew), Facebook, and every casual mobile twitch game that comes along, and mitigates this addiction by obsessively rereading classic works of literature.


He currently lives in Burbank, California with his wife and daughter, where everybody wakes up to sunny days, but dreams of a little rain.
