Lucy Wire

Conceived in the Valley of Hunters, Lucy dragged all her belongings to Sydney in 2007, wanting to take a hungry bite out of Australia's Big Red Apple... and so began her passionate love affair with Vibewire Youth Inc.

The non-profit youth org saw Lucy take a swing at every curve ball, including Communications, Human Resources, Editing, Design and Business Development. In the last year she has settled down as one of Vibewire's Online Community Managers, loving the close contact she has with Vibewire's supporters on Facebook (link).

Academically, Lucy has dabbled in a variety of fields, including Literature, History, Arts and finally finding her place in a degree of Media and Communications at Sydney University.

When she isn't rolling with the Communications Team at Vibewire, you'll find her pointing her SLR at beautiful landscapes, break-dancing in her living room, and wine-tasting at her birthplace.
