The Usual Bio Stuff:

Prior to her move down the coast, she was a founding partner of Object Adjective, a San Francisco web design firm specializing in custom social media and web application solutions.

A polymorphic entrepreneur with a love for social storytelling of all kinds, her experiences range greatly, from transmedia creative production, narrative design, social media strategy, project management, visual art & illustration, website design (incl. UI/UX), game design, art exhibition curation, programming (web and various platforms), to dabbling with low-level device drivers.

Lauren is a geek, and will take apart anything you haven’t nailed down or set behind SSL…so beware!

She is currently working on several cross-platform narrative fiction properties in collaboration with Philip Gable, EVP at Witchfactory, and others.

She holds a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and a Master’s of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute. She is a practitioner of Pa-Kua martial arts, acrobatics and sword, and a lover sushi, comic books, science fiction, fantasy, and playing both online and live action games. And she makes a mean piece of toast…
