Meet the team - Natalie

Hiya! My name is Natalie and I am a Senior Digital Producer here at Flume.

So – how did I get here?

It’s been a bit of a ride! I originally started my Bachelor of Communication Studies with keen focus on achieving my goal of becoming a radio presenter.

However, after a couple of tries on the mic, I quickly realized that it really wasn’t my thing! Thankfully, I found an affinity with my Advertising papers instead, and finished my degree, bright eyed, bushy tailed, and ready to enter the Advertising world.

Fate had other plans again, and instead I found a brand and corporate communications agency called Saturday, who took me on as an Account Executive. Through my time at Saturday I was introduced to the world of brand, and how critically important it can be to a businesses’ success, and building meaningful engagements with customers, which sparked a keen interest in the concept of customer experience.

After a few years, it was time for a change – I was hungry for a new challenge. I’d worked with the Flume team (then Hatch) on a few client projects, and saw they were advertising for a new Account Manager.

I thought to myself – “Web, how hard could it be?” and took the plunge.

I’ve now been with the Flume team for over two years, and can safely say that I was wholly unprepared for the learning curve required for managing websites – but it was exactly the challenge I was looking for!

The really awesome thing about working with the tight-knit team here, is that we all wear many different hats, and we’re all deeply involved in the work we are delivering. I am constantly learning, not just about websites and functionality, but also our client’s businesses, which I find very rewarding.

I think that this quote sums it up quite nicely -   

 “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
– Benjamin Franklin

I am always looking to learn new skills, and expand my existing ones, and being a part of the Flume team sure makes that happen.

Some stuff about me…

I am not much of a sharer – I like to keep my cards close to my chest. But, here’s a few things you may be interested to learn about me –

  1. I am an identical twin! So please don’t be offended if you see me out and about, and I don’t recognise you, because you’ve likely bumped into my sister! I have a few funny stories about mistaken identity, but I think these are best saved for another time and place…
  2. I absolutely love to draw, paint, sketch… anything art related. There’s something so peaceful about putting pen to paper (or in my case, pencil) and I have a pretty shameful collection of unused art supplies – goes with the territory I guess. Here is a few examples of the work I am most proud of –

  1. I love to read, and if I find a good book there’s no chance of me putting it down until I am finished. Here’s a few of my favourites –

Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss
Wise Man’s Fear – Patrick Rothfuss
The entire Harry Potter series (thanks to my formative teen years)
Where the Crawdads Sing – Delia Owens

  1. My most favourite place in the whole world is Great Barrier Island. It’s been our family summer holiday location since before I was born, and I have been at least once a year every year. We stay at a pretty humble kiwi bach, complete with a long drop, an outside shower, and a generator for power (only in the evenings) - it’s the perfect place to unwind

Well, that’s more than enough sharing from me, for now at least! I hope you found this entertaining, and this provided a bit of an insight into what makes me tick.

Hiya
I’m Natalie! I'm a problem-solver; I find it satisfying to find meaningful solutions that make a real difference. At Flume, I do all sorts - from website strategy, to managing new builds, or site changes, and everything in between. In my spare time you'll find me in my vege patch, or getting stuck into a good book.
