Hi! I’m Natalie Drest. Thanks for stopping by.


Natalie Drest is an alter ego.  She was created as a result of a comment by Michael Feldman when he selected me from the audience to participate in his NPR show “Whaddya Know” about 20 (maybe more) years ago.  I was wearing a new, very stylish suede jacket with some dazzling metalwork on it.  He tapped me to participate because I was enthusiastic and “nattily attired.”
