Additional information

I am an experienced 1st Assistant Director very dedicated to every production I work on. I approach all work with a happy & positive attitude, so I can help achieve the Director’s vision within the parameters of the production.

 I have worked my way up the AD ladder & worked across all types of productions working with cast of all ages. I enjoy the challenges of scheduling in pre-production, & have great attention to detail. I like to run the floor in a manner that allows everyone to achieve their best & feel supported.

DIRECTOR: ALEX PILLAI. BRIDGERTON. Season Two NETFLIX (2021) Testimonial

I’ve just finished working on the second season of Bridgerton with Natalie, for whom none of the complexities of a large shoot seemed too much. She is a fantastic collaborator, solid as a rock and a genius at scheduling to accommodate the most difficult of sequences. Her attention to detail is second to none. I hope to be lucky enough to work with her again.
