Hi, I’m Lauren.

I’m a writer, first and foremost. A B.A. in English, two years writing for SLO Life Magazine, and a variety of writing work at McMillan Study Guides and Masterfully, LLC reflect my expertise in the written word.

Edible Ink is a passion project that brings together my three favorite things: writing, food and travel.

Currently, I’m a Product Manager at Masterfully, LLC, where I put my creativity, communication and organizational skills to work developing enterprise cybersecurity training software.

When not working my day job, or pursuing one of (too) many hobbies, you can find me hanging out with my rescue pit Gino.

Subscribe to my Substack, Conflux, to follow my journey chasing the elusive space where inspiration and productivity converge.

Based in Central California. Open to freelance work.
