Natalia previously a Producer and Video producer for SBTV, and now at ITV News, which if we break it down, means she knows more than you about the urban music scene in London (probably) and she's probably handier at the pub quiz than most of us (definitely). She’s interviewed the likes of Will Smith, Schoolboy Q and Jamie Foxx and is currently working on a new joint venture with Jamal Edwards; rumour has it is a brand new online channel.

But that’s only the day job; Natalia is the media director and project manager for Plan B's charity Each One Teach One. The Chilean/Portuguese East Londoner, last year ran a series of creative courses in Journalism, Photography and Video Production for young people in East London led by young talented industry professionals. She continues to work on a weekly basis with the same young people; helping them gain work experience in a variety of media fields and getting them involved in exciting projects. She’s currently producing a short documentary alongside a series of online video tutorials to go alongside EOTO’s efforts. Natalia also works as a video producer for Sudden Black who create music videos, fashion promo and commercials. And…breathe. If you’re having trouble tracking the woman down, you might be able to find her navigating North-Weezy atop her horse. Yeah, she can also ride horses and she has her own pony. Officially bossing it.
