Lucy Russell Byrne
Director, Grammar Nazi and Formatting Fascist
Lucy has been telling stories for as long as she can remember. Before starting Girl Friday Media, Lucy studied musical theatre, worked in film and theatre production, wrote and directed cabaret shows and wrangled (other people’s) children. This mixed bag of professional experience, while diverse, developed her enthusiasm for collaboration, creativity and attention to detail.
Lucy graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2014 with a Bachelor of Media and Bachelor of Arts (English Major).
In 2015, Lucy found herself working as a Marketing and Fundraising Coordinator for a small charity, where she began to understand how powerful social media could be as a tool in raising the organisation’s profile and sharing its story with donors and supporters. Inspired to share her newfound skills and expertise in branding and communications with the good people of Adelaide, Lucy took the leap and started Girl Friday Media in January 2017.
Lucy is a massive nerd for theatre, news, and current affairs, and is proud member of the Port Adelaide Football Club. She is a homebody, enthusiastic cake decorator and sensational daggy dancer. She has been married to her husband, Boyfriend, for 4 years and gave birth to #babygenius Sadie in February 2018.
