Industry Guests Nicole Winchester, Rach Shelkey, and Sarah Doom will be attending Breakout 2020!

Nicole Winchester

Nicole Winchester

Nicole Winchester’s secret is the same as The Hulk’s – she’s always angry.

She played her first D&D adventure at age six, joined the cast of a Vampire: The Masquerade-inspired improv show when she was eighteen, then grew up to be an ‘international larper of mystery,’ participating in epic roleplay adventures around the world. A narrative designer who has written for Philadelphia’s Pseudonym Productions, Green Ronin Publishing, Dziobak Larp Studios, John Wick Presents’ 7th Sea, The Fate Codex, the Toronto Star and more, she is also the event lead for Canada’s first festival for larp and immersive art, Embodied.

Nicole is a co-founder of Fair Escape Studios, a DM for hire at Storm Crow Manor, an award-winning social media storyteller, and a veteran of three Olympic Games with CBC Sports. She has been @noizangel everywhere online for longer than she will admit.

Rach Shelkey
