It's about this.

human connection, meaningful impact.

Insight.  Strategy.  Content.


I believe in beating hearts.


Moving people and ideas forward is my get up and go.


I'm often invited to explore what's next:  identifying trends + insight

that create and shape concepts,  strategy and content for brand, design and social innovation.   


I roll into the interviewer/writer role on many projects and serve on non-profit and advisory boards, too.

Informed curiosity, caring and connection are true in everything I do.

I love to meet people where they are and learn from what they share 

to make meaningful impact.

More than 25 years into a global career that includes posts in New York, Paris and Portland immersive assignments throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas.


What I do and how I got here doesn't fit neatly into any one box: that's the fun part! 

It's also the value I bring to the right partners and projects.

Lauren's work speaks for itself: abundant, diverse, vibrant and

full of the awesomeness of human beings. 


Her ability to listen and see deeply, combined with her optimism, humour and love,

means she brings new possibilities and light to every project.  


Our world needs creators and connectors like Lauren more than ever.
