Global Ambassador - The Child Liberation Foundation

Nathan Spiteri is a man of many talents. He is a film maker, actor and writer. He is also a sexual abuse survivor and strong advocate. Born in Canberra, Australia, Nathan was sexually abused as a child, threatened with his life and that of his family. He turned to drugs, violence and sex as a result. Hitting rock bottom, Nathan finally came out the other side, through intense therapy, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics and Sex Anonymous. He has chosen to use his painful past to help others, aligning himself with organizations both in Australia and the US to raise awareness, educate people and act as an advocate for sexual abuse.

Nathan studied acting and film while in Sydney, at The Actors Lab with Annie Swann, before he was encouraged to further his studies in New York. He attended the prestigious HB Studio, in the West Village, where he studied under the likes of Carol Rosenfeld, Edward Morehouse and Austin Pendleton. With his green card in hand, he went on to study with Larry Moss, Brad Calcaterra, Tim Phillips and now Matthew Corozine. All the while, trying to face and come to terms with his past.

Having starred in several short feature films and theatre productions in both Australia and USA, Nathan has now turned his hand to writing and producing. His first feature film, ‘Toy Cars’, tells the story of his life. A gritty, dark, independent film that is in the pre-production stage. He has since completed short film scripts, and has started writing his second feature film. He has started writing his autobiography after getting a book deal from Shield-Maiden Publishing, a boutique publishing house out of Melbourne, Australia.

With his good friend and artist Melanie Jai, based in Australia, Nathan is working on Paper Boat Days. A large scale visual documentation, showing the effects of child abuse and domestic violence in a raw, brutal, honest, and vulnerable way told through the eyes of an artist.

He was the keynote speaker at the 7th Annual Surviving Sexual Abuse Conference, Paths to Healing, in Madison, Wisconsin. Hd done TV interviews on Child Abuse and his advocacy work to The Young Turks, Good Morning LALA Land and Cheddar TV. He is absolutely honored to be a Global Ambassador on Child Trafficking and Child Sex Trafficking.
