Co-Founder // Producer & Head Of Music
Lisa was born and raised in Stockholm, but has spent many years living in the US. Currently, she’s splitting her time between Stockholm and San Diego. Lisa received a Bachelor’s in Business Administration in 2009 and has worked in multiple large corporations. Soon after graduation, Lisa realized she wasn't just an asset in business and organization, but also a very creatively talented person. She started writing music and a new career as an artist and musician took off.
As much as she loved performing, she missed the business world. It wasn't until she and Lauren teamed up and decided to start The Beatnik Group that she realized she could have the best of both worlds; using organizational skills to run a company while using her creativity to make clients' visions come to life.
At Beatnik, Lisa is combining her corporate skills and her artistry to manage business relations and productions, develop projects with clients and teammates, and to write and record unique tracks to accompany Beatnik's video work. Get in touch at Lisa@thebeatnikgroup.com.
Co-Founder // Head Of Visuals
Lauren is an American born visuals expert splitting time between Stockholm and Los Angeles. Lauren graduated from one of the top schools in the U.S.A., The College of William and Mary with a double major in Film and Psychology. Lauren knew from an early age that she had an interest in how the human mind works. This has proven to be a highly beneficial curiosity when creating visual content that pulls the viewer in and makes them care about your messaging. Lauren has experience in a wide range of traditional Hollywood production environments as a Camera Operator; Director of Photography; stage manager, project manager, and a 3D modeler in a VFX house; and as an editor. This varied skillset is instrumental in working with innovative museums and exhibits. Lauren can speak a technical language that even the most seasoned filmmakers have a hard time with, which has been instrumental in partnering with tech solution teams like av1.se and pixilab.se
At Beatnik, Lauren is the Head of Production and Post Production. Lauren also regularly consults on projects during the development stage. Get in touch at Lauren@thebeatnikgroup.com.

Graphic & Web Designer
Daniela was born and raised in Mexico City but has spent the past few years living in different continents. Currently, she splits her time between Mexico and Germany, but is an avid traveler and digital nomad.
Daniela became obsessed with graphic design and photography at the age of ten when she randomly stumbled across a tutorial online on how to create a graphic by blending two photos together. While the graphic she created at the time was horrendous, she found herself enjoying the process immensely and began creating mockup websites using Paint.
Daniela’s skills are a perfect combination of tech savviness and a brilliant visual eye. A combination that isn’t always easy to find. Daniela is a new found talent on the Beatnik team, and we absolutely love working with her.
