Managing Director

Liz Mazzei

Raised in northern California, and now based in Brooklyn, Liz has that enviable blend of an easy going personality with big city ambition. After earning two degrees at San Francisco State University, she began her career on the product team at an online advertising startup. There she learned that to thrive in a startup environment you have to be determined to wear multiple hats and steadily take on new challenges. As her career evolved, Liz realized she wanted to make an impact in the way small businesses and startups manage their marketing activities, and just like that, a seed was planted.

Prior to launching her eponymous agency, Liz was most recently the Communications & PR Director at the New York State Restaurant Association. She is currently a mentor at the Foodworks, a culinary incubator for food makers in Brooklyn, and hosts a number of marketing workshops for small businesses. Outside of marketing, Liz is also active in the urban farming world and is the Intern Crew Leader at The Youth Farm, a one-acre education production farm in Crown Heights.
