Billie was born in Santa Barbara, California on Australia Day (or better known as Superbowl Sunday in America), 1986. Growing up amongst her parentsâ€™ clothing and textile companies and her father's love for spec house construction between Baja, Indonesia and Southern California, she learned from their entrepreneurial and sustainable habits. With the support of her extended family in Los Angeles, at the age of 10, Proffitt became involved in the entertainment industry doing print and commercial work. She attended Villanova Preparatory School but upon deciding against playing collegiate soccer or volleyball she focused more on the work force while obtaining her diploma. Billie dabbled in college studies, at 18 became the GMâ€™s assistant at one of Hollywoodâ€™s biggest nightclubs; achieved her diploma in professional acting at The Meisner Center in the Magnolia Arts District and eventually worked in production and acting in both the American and Australian entertainment industries. She has always made it a priority to build a colorful working CV.
At 22, she joined the in-house PR, marketing and sales teams at Montblancâ€™s West Coast flagship store on Rodeo Drive, moved for a brief moment into music at Organica Music Group and then joined a start up on Abbot Kinney Boulevard called Amalgamates Solutions Research â€“ a joint venture brought from Raglan, New Zealand which studies ocean currents before building artificial, offshore submerged reefs. To keep things interesting she then moved into the mining industry â€“ focused mainly on the financial side, for an Australian company which had holdings across Australia as well as Canada, China, Mongolia, Namibia, Tanzania and The UK. After a few years (and a very bad gut illness brought on by parasites), she gave into her creative desires once again by restructuring her lifestyle and focusing on getting her writing published across the international art world in magazines and galleries, often working directly with the artists themselves and alongside a handful of authors on their books.
A strikingly competent individual with a youthful enthusiasm for whatever endeavor she chooses, Billie prides herself on her adaptability, keen skills in picking up new procedures, abilities to remain comfortable in social relations that bring out the best in collaborations, and enjoys the challenge of â€œfish-out-of-waterâ€ situations. She is supportive and firm in the tasks at hand and takes her responsibilities seriously, while keeping a light-hearted and humorous outlook in her everyday attitude.
