I’m Natalie, a writer and a filmmaker. Above all else I have a huge passion for storytelling and entertaining with stories, characters, and worlds that are unique, new and captivating. My specialty is stories that feature strong, empowered women, who rise above their struggles – with an emphasis on action. I have a degree majoring in screenwriting and minoring in film studies from Loyola Marymount University; graduating Summa Cum Laude. I have created a film production company with my brothers (being one in a set of triplets) and written and produced three short films with that company that have gone on to be showcased in various festivals in the past few years. Now I have turned that focus to TV and continue to write and educate myself in that field (having just finished Jen Grisanti’s Storywise Teleseminar, learning how to deeper develop and pitch pilots). I’m immensely passionate about television and employing the most effective ways to tell stories in that medium.
