Born and raised in Scranton, PA, Lauren has spent her career doing a variety of fascinating work in different parts of the globe, much with a strong bent towards environmental activism and sustainability. She is a multi-talented writer, researcher, and photo producer.
Lauren recently spent a month with Greenpeace and its campaign ship, the Rainbow Warrior, reporting on tuna longliners, overfishing and slavery in the South Pacific. While documenting how canned tuna gets from sea to plate, she produced various content for both national and international publications. Prior to this, she was part of CMG's 2015 Catalyst Workshops, supporting Zafer Kizilkaya and the Mediterranean Conservation Society on a project moving forward as part of CMG's 2015 Blue Initiative Grant. MCS will be using video to engage the local population in purchasing and eating invasive species of fish as part of their community-managed marine protected area (MPA).
In 2012, Lauren received an MSc in Environment and International Development from King’s College, London, focusing on national identity and its impacts on environmental quality and public health. She is currently based in New Orleans, LA.
