Nica Noelle is the stage name of an American entrepreneur, pornographic film actress and director, as well as a writer whose essays have appeared in Salon, The Huffington Post and Hustler. She is the co-founder of adult film studios Sweetheart Video, Sweet Sinner, Sweet Sinema, Girl Candy Films, Rock Candy films, Hot Candy Films, and TransRomantic Films.
Noelle began her career at the age of 19, working at a psychodrama house in New York City. Afterwards, she became a columnist for underground adult magazines, but she soon switched to porn after she began writing for magazines like $pread.
After performing in some scenes for the lesbian-porn studio Girlfriends Films, Noelle and Mile High Media (an adult film production/distribution company) founded rival lesbian-porn company Sweetheart Video, straight couples-themed brand Sweet Sinner, and Hollywood-inspired brand Sweet Sinema. Through November 2011, Noelle was the sole writer and director of every title from each of these companies. Each of the studios' productions are distributed through Mile High Media. Noelle received an AVN Award nomination for Director of the Year in 2010.
In 2011, Noelle began directing for Mile High Media's then-new company, Sweet Sinema. However, she resigned from Mile High Media that November to sign a new deal with AEBN to create new porn brands Girl Candy Films (lesbian sex), Hard Candy Films (straight), Rock Candy Films (gay), and TransRomantic Films (transgender). Hard Candy Films has since been renamed Hot Candy Films.
