Nathaniel began his career at a very young age, following in his mother's footsteps, Magdalena Villanueva, who at that time was a professional dancer and singer. He made his way in the industry through TV shows, theater, musicals and films, sharing the stage with personalities such as Gael Garcia during the production of a soap opera called "My grand Father and I", Regina Torne as a member of her professional theater company and many others. He also lent his voice and singing talents to various Latin American versions of Disney characters for film and television while working as an employee of the CMG recording studios.
