          Natasha is a Vancouver-based filmmaker, motion designer and photographer. Her eclectic body of work spans a broad spectrum of storytelling mediums, specializing in combining documentaries, music and animation.

Over 15 years in the industry has brought Natasha around the world, from filming at the peaks of Chamonix for Arc’teryx, Sri Lankan factories for lululemon, to photographing remote Amazonian tribes as an accredited journalist in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 

Natasha’s diverse life experiences, interests, and hobbies flavour her work, offering a unique perspective. Her personal aim and practice is to approach story-telling from outside the perspective of the western mind, helping shift stereotypes and cliché expectations of how westerners view other countries and cultures.
At the age of 19, she left her hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba to travel independently to Harbin, China to work and live. Since then, Natasha has been going her own way with following her passion for understanding the world and cultures around her, and sharing what she has learned. 

In 2004, Natasha attended Vancouver Film School with a full scholarship and graduated with an award-winning music video and 2 diplomas in Film and Design. VFS later asked her to become an instructor and mentor at the school, based on the success of her final project as a student and experience in the industry.
In 2012, Natasha received her post-graduate diploma in journalism from the London School of Journalism distant learning program. During this time she was living and working in Buenos Aires, Argentina as a photo-journalist and editor for a local print and online newspaper, where she got to immerse herself in the politics and arts of Buenos Aires.
Apart from working most of her life as a freelancer, she spent 3 years working full-time with lululemon athletica specializing in documentary-style storytelling,  helping them create transparency with their international factories and sustainability.

Over the many years of directing creative projects from concept development to completion for film, TV and popular brands, she has watched the industry change dramatically since the beginning of her career and has adapted to the ever-changing digital age of social media with enthusiasm.
Continuing to explore the future of story-telling, Natasha is constantly looking for new mediums and methods across all platforms.

Alongside her filmmaking career, Natasha's interest in eastern medicine and holistic health broadened, and she went back to school to study Traditional Chinese Medicine. In addition to her creative career, she is now a licensed TCM acupuncturist and herbalist who enjoys finding a balance between the world of medicine and storytelling.
