Hello, I’m Lauren. I grew up in a village in northern England, where I enjoyed an idyllic childhood full of hill walking and horse riding, then moved away as soon as I turned 18 (sorry, mum!)

After selling sunglasses in Dublin, studying Linguistics in London and teaching English in Spanish summer camps, I got my first content writing job in Barcelona. Work opportunities took me to Mexico City and finally Amsterdam, where I became a copywriter and then made the leap to UX writing.

Along the way, I wrote articles for Barcelona’s leading English-language magazine, translated dirty jokes from Catalan to English for a TV3 web comedy series, and volunteered as a staff writer for US non-profit Random Acts.

In my free time, you’ll find me travelling, open-water swimming or hanging out with a book in my hammock.  If you ask me nicely, I might even bake you a cake.

  1. Can Teacher’s Discovery repost one of your blog posts on our blog? I think the post “Let me die like a Mexican” is beautiful and I’d love to repost it. I will include your name and a link back to your blog. And let me know if you’re ever interested in writing an original post for us!

  2. Amazing writing! I keep looking for the subscribe button on this site! Who doesn’t have a way to sign up to be loved? What other secret places can I find your writing? It’s like chocolate! Got to have more!
