Natalie is originally from Tucson, Arizona. She comes from a background of varied artistic mediums such as piano and modern dance. She believes her background in competitive swimming instilled in her the type of focus and discipline it takes to be a true craftswoman. She has a deep kinship for the underdog and the overlooked. At a young age, she never truly fit into any one tribe and has grown to run with this aspect of her personality. While living in NYC for 14 years, she studied at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater and William Esper Two Year Acting Conservatory program as well as working with Robert Modika, Elizabeth Kemp, Robert McCaskill, and Susan Batson. Natalie learned almost everything she knows about film acting under the apprenticeship of the late Clark Middleton. She has studied alternative methods of acting through energy work with Nancy Mayans. The first film she acted in, JUKKA, won the audience award at the Cannes Short Film Corner. Natalie has produced and acted in theater productions off-broadway at The Access Theater as well as The Gene Frankel Theater. She continues her screenwriting studies under the guidance of C.C. Webster, an award-winning writer, and producer in NYC. Her main intention within the visual arts is to investigate internal truths that exceed identity and connect people universally. In her free time, she likes to go to the beach, discover new artists, play piano, skateboard, and bike.
