Experience

Natalia is a film writer based in Ridgewood, Queens. Since graduating with an M.A. from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism in 2019, she has freelanced for a number of publications, among them Paste Magazine, Filmmaker Magazine, Blood Knife Magazine, and Awards Watch. She is particularly interested in examining the intersection of race, gender and sexuality in the horror genre, but has covered an eclectic range of films, directors and cinematic trends within her work. Above all, everything she does is to honor her beautiful (and large) orange cat named Henry.

Education

Natalia was an annoying overachiever while earning her B.A. at SUNY New Paltz, double-majoring in Spanish and Journalism and double-minoring in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies and Latin American & Caribbean Studies. After taking a gap year to sling coffee, she enrolled at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism in NYC, cramming courses on podcasting, Spanish-language reporting, arts & culture writing, and documentary filmmaking into her program’s three short semesters before graduating with an M.A. in 2019.
