Who is La?

Repping the great state of Louisiana? Light up sneakers from the 90s? A note to follow "So"?

Nah – It’s just short for Lauren, and you may call me whichever name you prefer.

Swings are great.

Who I Am

On the career personality tests in school, I always scored high on opposite sides of the funky, 5-pointed graph: Art and Technology. Everyone else scored high on adjacent subjects, presenting clear topics for their career path essays. I'm pretty sure I split my essay into two mini-essays, unable to choose a side.

I was a 12-year-old rebel.

How I got Here

My undergrad degree from Oglethorpe (aka Atlanta's Hogwarts) is in Studio Art with a Psychology minor. I worked as a Graphic Designer and marketer for 5 years before going to Georgia Tech to earn my MS in Human-Computer Interaction (with equal focus in Digital Media and Industrial Design). Currently, I'm a User Experience Architect at Moxie and do some arts marketing on the side. Find my full resume here.

What I do

I brainstorm, collaborate, and throw ideas at walls. I organize, prioritize, and simplify. I hack and tinker, research, test, and solve. I ferociously attack design problems from both strategic and creative angles, pouncing on the user-friendliest of solutions. Roar!

skills

I’m always looking to expand my knowledge and abilities, but here are some of my favorite things – things that I am confident I can do well.

107 coasters and counting! I really like ranting about park accessibility and storytelling choices...
