About

Nikita Coulombe headshot 2018
Hello, welcome. My name is Nikita Coulombe. About me: I spent the first half of my childhood in Winnipeg, Canada, and the second half in Boulder, Colorado. I’ve also lived in California and Hawaii. I may not have much of an accent anymore, but the values of my upbringing have stuck, mainly: treat others how you would like to be treated. I try to think about that with everything that I do.

My background is in psychology and fine art, and I have degrees in both from the University of Colorado. For several years, I worked closely with social psychologist and past APA President, Dr. Philip Zimbardo. Dr. Z has been a great mentor and friend; together we co-authored a couple of books. Another friend and mentor has been Dr. Warren Farrell. I provided research assistance for Dr. Farrell’s book, The Boy Crisis. Staying with the theme of boys and men’s issues, I helped award-winning filmmaker Cassie Jaye launch her documentary, The Red Pill.

One of my passions is writing. In 2013 I started a blog called BetterSexEd with sex coach Keeley Rankin. I am also passionate about painting. In 2019 I started my own studio in Boulder, Colorado, where I create large abstract paintings and mixed media pieces. Additionally, I design wall decor and textile patterns, which can be licensed through Roaring Brook Art and Patternbank, respectively.
