About me

Hi! I'm Lizzie, a project manager with over 5 years experience, providing end-to-end management in the creative industries across the world (hence the weird accent!). Hands-on and obsessively organised, I have worked alongside brands such as Ray White Australia, Estée Lauder, Westfield and Girl Guiding UK to bring projects to life right on time. With a bachelor’s degree in Design, and a hawk eye for detail, I have a passion for beautiful things, and words that are spelt correctly. When I’m not working, you’ll most likely find me in Europe, enjoying a glass of Malbec with friends, or watching the football. Occasionally, all three at the same time.
