Lisa is originally from Toronto but moved to London at the end of 2016 in search of new adventures. With a background in finance and office administration, she found herself working as a temp Finance Assistant at Sony Music UK and then moved over to the video dept who were looking for a ‘numbers monkey’ and someone who wasn’t even remotely interested in anything creative – cue Lisa.

She spent the next 10 years working alongside some of the top commissioners in the industry and learning hands on about all things music video. To date, she has commissioned videos for artists such as Mabel, Laura Mvula, Skepta, London Grammar, Little Mix & J Hus and has worked with all of the top record labels.

In May 2017, Lisa went freelance and a year later, moved back to Toronto where she currently resides while still commissioning UK projects full time and watching Love Island part time.

When was the last time you felt truly alive and inspired, and what triggered it?
This is going to sound very cliche but it would have to be when my son was born. I had a really rough time in the first few months after his birth but once that passed, I definitely found myself in a new, stronger headspace and ready to take on the world!
