Natalie is a poet, filmmaker, performer, writer & visual artist based in Los Angeles, CA. In her literary work she seeks to explore & interfere with the experience of language by examining its etymological & emotional sources, combining linguistic forms with other mediums, & blurring the line between fact, fiction, & memory. Her cinematic projects run the gamut from raunchy comedy to experimental non-narrative, but all seek to expound upon human dynamics & bring non-traditional, female focused, stories to the big & small screen.
She is a classically trained actor & an alumna of the Andrew Wood Acting Studio & the Beverly Hills Playhouse in Los Angeles; & the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. In addition to appearances in film, television, & on stage she works behind the scenes as a screenwriter, executive producer, & director for endeavours of all shapes & sizes. She is currently at work on several projects; including two independent feature films; & Bones, an experimental short film at the intersection of poetry & filmmaking. Watch her directorial debut short film, 4B, online.
