Hi. I’m Natalie! // I'm a creative consultant. What the heck is that? I'm glad you asked! You could say I'm a dream maker. My tools are an iMac and the Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection. Sometimes my clients have foggy dreams. They say, “I want an edgy kind of video. Oh, and it has to have booming sound.” It’s an idea. It’s their dream, but not well-defined. They will know what they want when they see it. My task is to turn the dream into reality. With a passion for graphic, artistic work, their dream becomes my dream. I ponder their few sentences, consider the tone in their voice to determine the message they want to convey. Soon that dream takes shape and their dream becomes a video, poster, brochure or advertisement.
The dream can begin with you. Contact me to share your vision. Let me be your dream maker.

The Blog // Music was my first love. My dad introduced me to Elvis and the Beatles in 2nd grade and life was different. As an adult I realized I loved getting my hands in other kinds of art as well like graphic design and video production. Anything that I can start and then complete and say "hey I had a part in that" makes me feel good.
During the opening Sunday of the Brookside campus of Restore Community Church we covered Rihanna’s “Stay”. We ended up with a blizzard in Kansas City that day so that’s the reason I’m wearing a hoodie. Not the most fashionable choice Nat–but I was warm. The launch went great and we had a fun time covering this tune.
I covered “Too Close” by Alex Clare (ya know the microsoft commercial song) for the opener of our See You at the Party event at Collide. We had so much fun.
I covered OneRepublic “All the Right Moves” , one of my favs. We thought we’d give it our own twist. What do you think?

We covered The Civil War’s “Poison & Wine” to open a teaching about the impact of our words for Venue’s Best of You Series. If you like it you can download the live mp3 here:

This was super fun. I wasn’t really a Barlow Girl fan until I heard this song (like 10 years late) and I dig it. Great choice Michael! You can check out the full length service this video came from at right here.
I had never heard of the Harlem Globetrotters before a month ago. I have been missing out! Harlem Globetrotters are put together of retired NBA players. Not only are the insanely awesome athletes they poke fun of the other team through out the game. Definitely a plus for someone with ADD tendencies like me. (I don’t stay interested in sports for long). My church, Venue, played in a charity game against the Globetrotters. Here was the highlight video I made for that next Sunday:
I created this flyer to help promote the game. It was fun to create and a blast to watch. What do you guys think about the Globetrotters? Are they more common than I realize and I’ve been out of the loop? Jeez…What other awesome things do I not know about?
Last month I put together a video for Venue that played behind a worship tune. Venue peeps had submitted commitments in January of how they were going to step out and honor God in everyday life. In February they also posted pix on the Venue fb page of “God Moments: Finding God in Everyday Life”. We combined the two for this video and played it on the screens during a worship tune called “The Stand”. I got to sing backup with Michael on this. I always love singing with him.
Thanks for sharing your photos and commitments, Venue!
One of my all time favorite songs is “Best of You” by Foo Fighters. I can’t decide if it’s one of my favorites because of the song alone or Dave Grohl’s hotness that just puts that song over the top for me. A series starting on Easter at Venue is called…you guessed it…Best of You. I wanted this series graphic to have balls. It couldn’t look girly. It couldn’t be comical. It needed to be straight rock and roll. Almost 80s arena rock feel. I probably did 12 drafts of this series because I could not get my girliness out of it. We revised and revised and revised until we got to this….
