Here's a little about me, written in third-person just for you!

Lauren is a designer living in hip, humid, happy Baltimore, Maryland.

Lauren has experience as both a designer and developer—primarily Web design and UI/UX, but also quite a bit of front-end HTML/CSS/JS development work and some back-end PHP work. She studied Visual Communications at Stevenson University, and thus comes from a print design background, having made the transition to Web design both at college and in the field.

Lauren currently works with Figure 53 doing UI/UX for web, mobile and desktop applications. She also works on Web, illustration, and icon design projects through her freelance business, Isosceles.

Lauren prefers when people write it "Web site." Because it's a site. On the Web. Lauren is present on App.net where you can find her as @herda. She also tweets on Twitter, and you can follow her here: @lrenhrda. Lauren participates actively on Dribbble and goes through phases where she pins incessantly on Pinterest.

Alright, enough of the third-person. I have some good friends—online, professional, and personal. Here are some links to the Web sites of these awesome folks, from whom I have learned much over the years and to whom I also owe much.
