My name is Natalie Xavier. I was born in Anaheim, CA . Growing up in the shadow of Disneyland, it is no surprise that animation became a big part of my life. I got my BA in Studio Art from the University of California, Irvine with a Minor in Digital Art. When looking into graduate schools, UCLA seemed to be the perfect fit for me. While at the UCLA Animation Workshop, I made three animated films. I was responsible for all aspects of the production from storyboards to animation to final product. Along with many of my fellow Animation students, I recently graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with my MFA in Film with a specialization in Animation. I am looking optimistically into the future living here in Los Angeles. While working as a freelance visual development artist, I am proud of the fact that I work with many creative and talented to people in the industry I love.
