A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Plants & Animals
I'm Lauren - a native Californian who recently returned after 7-years of living abroad in London, New York City (may as well be a different country) and briefly, Southeast Asia. A lover of typography and color, I graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Design | Media Arts. I spent the first five years of my career in Manhattan creative agencies managing strategic planning, creative development & execution for biotech and financial services clients. I moved over to the whacky and wonderful of BuzzFeed HQ in 2015, where I led Account Management for the Tech & Telco native advertising team. In 2017, they shipped me off to London to lead the European Account Management team and help develop business strategy in an international market.
I returned to The States in August to pursue my true passion, food. I'm a vegan and avid plant based chef. On any given Sunday you can find me at the farmer's market or a cafe reading about tumeric, cordyceps...and a host of other things that nobody quite understands. I’m seeking opportunities to use my global media and marketing experience for the good of people, animals and the planet.
