About Me

My name is Lizzie Manno and I’m from Cleveland, Ohio. I’m a senior studying communication at Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania. I plan to work in the music industry in some form, whether it be music journalism, marketing, PR, etc. I love all kinds of music, but I especially love British alternative rock because I grew up listening to it. From January-May 2017, I studied abroad in the UK where I saw over 100 bands and was finally able to experience the vibrant British music scene. I love collecting vinyl records, going to gigs, and sharing my love for music with other people. Besides here on this blog, I have also written about music professionally for Cleveland Scene Magazine, XS Noize, and the Odyssey.

I am always looking for more opportunities to expand my work experience (especially if it’s anything to do with music, journalism, marketing, media, or PR). Click here to view a PDF of my resumé and you can also find my LinkedIn page at the top of the screen.
