Headphones and Crayons

Headphones and Crayons is an art-infused dialogue-based podcast that teaches businesses, creatives, and entrepreneurs how to redefine productivity and unlock creative possibility and human potential through coloring.

Join Nikita Burks-Hale weekly as she explores the integration of voice, sound, color, and creativity and its relationship to business, relationships, and your inner self. Also hear reflective “journeys” from creatives, change-makers, and entrepreneurs from around the world while coloring. Consider this your personal invitation to tune in and color along.

Nikita Burks-Hale Profile Photo

Nikita Burks-Hale

Chief Coloring Officer

I am an Atlanta-based creative, coach, and practitioner who focuses on amplification and alignment specifically for Women of Color. I help entrepreneurs, podcasters, and creatives stay attuned and present as they grow and expand so that they do not lose themselves along the way.
Creatively, I build and facilitate spaces for humans to come together through the art form of coloring as a catalyst for connection, dialogue, and healing.

I am a journeyer in every sense of the word and truly believe that life is a journey and you must be open to its endless possibilities. My coaching and personal beliefs are centered around living your imperfect journey to the fullest by:

- Showing Up
- Being Vulnerable
- Practicing Gratitude
- Be A Badass
-And Enjoying the Ride

When I am not coaching, aligning, coloring, or journeying, you can find me watching the latest Disney movies with my wife Jessica and my two young kids, Adonis and Remy.
