Originally from Singapore, Natalie is a Communication Design graduate from Monash University. The movie that changed the way she looked at films was Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! when she was 10 years old. She enjoys postmodern art, British television shows, nail polish, horror movies and Wong Kar-wai a lot. She has no filter and can be found rambling on Twitter most of the time.
