Hey there! I’m Lauren, a user experience designer in Durham, NC. For over 15 years I have contributed to, or led, design and product teams. My strengths include strategic ideation, user-centered research and design, and product management. I am always looking to bring hand craft to my work, whether on a letterpress or using low fidelity* sketches to validate ideas.

I am happiest working with a focused team that’s not afraid to dream big and get weird. I’ve been fortunate to work with small and large organizations to tackle big challenges from giving teachers a voice to addressing gaps in living wage work. I believe in the impact of design.

When not making, I am usually reading or hiking in the woods with my husband and daughter.

*super low fidelity, I am pretty bad at drawing.
