Lili Kryzanek

Content Director Globe traveler, lyrical reveler, aesthetic dazzler. On a forever quest for the world’s best pretzel and beer cheese.

A jill of many trades, Lili’s unconventional background has led her down a whirlwind of a life path. A vocalist trained in jazz, classical and opera, Lili worked to carve her own path in Chicago’s music scene as she secured her degree in Arts, Entertainment and Media Management from Columbia College Chicago. Years spent performing, recording, producing and touring as a self-managed musician allowed her to develop a unique perspective surrounding marketing, branding and creative writing.

Her innovative mindset led her to the role of Marketing Director at the restaurant group behind the infamous Ed Debevic’s and the legendary Gino’s East. Fully immersing herself in her love for writing, strategy, photography and videography, Lili concepted and shot billboards along Michigan Avenue, cultivated partnerships with HBO films and NFL players, wrote a coloring book and even created a handful of viral videos. A true marketing generalist, her hybrid role at BatesMeron consists of strategy, copywriting, photography and videography.

In her own time, Lili is the Director, Producer, Music Supervisor and Writer of Low Strung, an award-winning comedic web series created with her best friends. With two seasons full of ridiculously unhinged comedy, it serves as the perfect peek at the madness within her mind. Lili lives for turning the wildest ideas into reality. She aims to photograph her way around the world, loves to bake cheesecake, does daily yoga with her dog Lola and spends far too much time talking to her plants and thrifting for home décor.

All in all, her life’s been nuts. If you'd like to hear the full story of her path to BatesMeron, why not schedule a coffee date so we can talk about how her life experiences can help you in your marketing journey.
