About Me /

It’s about saying what you need to say, and not a syllable more.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, I say lose the picture. No one needs a thousand words–not when the right few do so much.

ComedicWho I Am

I am Natalie C. Mueller. I started using my middle initial professionally when I was ten-years-old practicing my autograph and thought it looked fancy. I am a writer, thinker and creative tinkerer. I like big ideas and small words. I believe strong messages punctuate good design and vice versa. I crave collaboration and, often, oatmeal stouts.

I am a champion of story, both on the page and onstage as a player in Chicago’s astounding comedy and live lit scene. I savor the opportunity to tell your story and make something together.

I now co-run The Banditry Co, a full-service animated video production boutique, as Copy and Story Director.

I was married and changed my name in 2015 and have been having an identity crisis about it ever since.
