Natalie wanders between New York and Los Angeles, finding work as a dramatist, performer, teacher, administrator, and bartender.
Their shows and songs have been performed Off-Broadway, in venues around New York City, and at theaters across the country. With collaborator John Brooks, they were selected for the 2018 New Voices Project at NMI in Los Angeles. Most recently, their show #adulting: a millennial opera received its Seattle debut with the LowBrow Opera Collective after a limited Off-Broadway run at St. Luke's Theatre.
Natalie teaches acting, dance, and voice to K-12 students, as well as serving as a music director and choreographer for youth theater. The highlight of their career as a performer was making their Off-Broadway debut in The Scarlet Savior as an understudy, during a blizzard, while they were eight weeks pregnant with their kid.
They earned an M.F.A. in Musical Theater Writing from NYU Tisch, and a B.A. in Drama from UC Irvine.
