Born in London to an Irish father and Czech mother who met in Johannesburg, I moved to Los Angeles at the age of four before adventuring through adulthood in San Francisco with a handful of stints in Oslo. I focused on 3D modeling and creature concepts at university, but have mostly worked in graphic design & illustration where I have enjoyed working with a variety of brands, people, and projects from all over. I have also enjoyed real estate & boudoir photography.

When not working, I can be found running in the great outdoors, swimming across the San Francisco bay, lost in the vortex that is my Kindle, painting tiny things, obsessively organizing my Trello boards, and getting carried away by great music when not anchored by good food.

HAPPINESS IS
  • A full fridge and an empty laundry basket
  • Packing suitcases & grocery bags like tetris
  • Those stripes you get in the carpet after vacuuming
  • The first sip of morning coffee
  • Pareidolia
  • Music-induced goosebumps and/or tears

It soon became evident that the team had hired a real talent. … Lauren is one of those rare artists that a production can always depend on, and one every production needs.
JAMES HUGHES · The Velvet Abstract

I have had a long and ugly career in various types of publications, and I’ve worked with many designers, but I can surely say from experience that there are very few like you, especially for project management skills.
