Australian songwriter, artist and creative director.
Hi there! I'm Lizzy or almost every abbreviation of Elizabeth to someone significant in my life. I hail from a small beach town in Australia that aptly regards itself as a city. I now exist somewhere between there and a few other cities that I venture to for work or too many cups of tea with friends.
I often describe myself as a creative nerd. Pragmatic, yet imaginative. I suppose the best example of this is what I chose to study at university - Law and Communications. I wanted the structure that Law provided, yet the creativity that came along with communications; marketing & design.
When I finished my studies (in amongst spending time in America writing songs) I started my life as a freelancer (or modern day cowboy) at 23 and then launched my own business at 24.
My twenties have been spent juggling songwriting and building up my own business.
I now run Basic Black Creative where we work predominantly on branding and digital content for businesses - I know, how incredibly millenial of me... Don't be fooled though, at heart I'm really just an 85 year old lady who loves to drink tea and watch classic films.
When I'm not working away on brands, I'm writing songs for film, tv and other artists and occasionally I'll keep a few songs for myself. I also sometimes get to work on music supervision teams to create soundtracks for films.
To add a little more chaos to the mix, i'm about to begin my Masters in International Media Law - arguably because I'm a glutton for punishment.
My life can be completely crazy one day and beautifully quiet the next. It's a delicate balance that sometimes drives me insane - but I wouldn't have it any other way.
When I’m not working I love to see films, bake things, watch 30 Rock episodes over and over again, open too many tabs on internet browsers and write lists of places to see, things to do and people to meet.
I appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to get to know me a little better. Feel free to say hello! I love to meet new people and hear their stories!
