Natalie Rodriguez is an award-winning writer, director, and a mental health and anti-violence/trauma advocate based in Los Angeles, CA. In 2014, she graduated from CSU Fullerton with a Bachelor of Arts in Radio-TV-Film.

Recently, she wrote, directed, and produced her first No-Budget feature film, "The Extraordinary Ordinary.” The film follows three young adults with a history of mental health issues as they cope with triggers and old wounds resurfacing. The film stars John Posey ("How to Get Away with Murder" and "Lucifer"), Maddison Bullock ("Stasis"), Alex Montalban ("My Dinner with Herve"), and Ana Marte ("Amigos," co-starring alongside, LeLe Pons). Further details on the project can be found @theextraordfilm.

Some of Natalie's previous writing work can be found in publications such as the HuffPost Blog, Thrive Global, Anxiety Resource Center, Opposing Views, NowThis News, Zooey Deschanel's Hello Giggles, The Mighty, and many more.

In 2017, Natalie founded her production company, Extraordinary Pictures LLC., focusing on feature films, digital, and television. Currently, she has multiple projects in development, including a TV sitcom, "The D," which placed in top-ten for best comedy screenplays at Stage 32. Her Young Adult manuscript, "Elephant," was also a finalist at Clare Books' the Binge-Watching Cure II contest for 'Best Novel and set for publication in spring 2020 with Eliezer Tristan Publishing, Inc.
