Hello there, I'm Lauren (she/her)! I graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in English and Theatre as well as a certificate in Integrated Marketing Communications. I'm currently in NYU's Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program, concentrating in Lyrics and Book.
Creative storytelling is a vital part of who I am, as it is the outlet in which I most naturally express myself. Creativity amplifies my voice, satisfying my desire to think outside of the box, ask thought-provoking questions, brainstorm innovative ideas, and ultimately devise imaginative solutions.
As a writer, I treat books like creative treasure troves, full of patterns, meanings, and nuances to uncover. Trust me, you've never seen someone bedazzle a book with colorcoded sticky notes more than I do.
As a performer and musical theatre writer, I revel in designing new worlds and view theatre as an untapped playground to explore the unknown, a subject many shy away from in their everyday lives.
As a marketer, I take pleasure in intentionality and love experimenting with language in order to figure out what configuration of words and graphics most succinctly conveys a sought after meaning.
I’m a child at heart, preferring work that has a sense of play, and yet my favorite form of play is one that leads to dynamic dialogues, diverse collaborations, and revolutionary products. This might seem like a walking contradiction, yet my favorite place to be is directly in this point of contention, as many times, things that initially appear to oppose one another are, at their core, extremely intersected :)
