Hi, I’m Lauren—a writer and editor, and founder of the music blog The Grey Estates.

I have written for publications including Teen Vogue, MTV News, The Fader, Travel + Leisure, CNN Opinion, Bandcamp Daily, and many others. I was previously the editor at Views & Voices, a magazine for women in Western Pennsylvania. In 2016, I received a Professional Keystone Press Award for a personality profile.

I founded and established a music blog called The Grey Estates. We share our favorite music with the world, held two unofficial SXSW parties, and released tapes. In 2015, Style of Sound named us one of the 100 most influential indie music blogs in the world. We were also featured in The Verge.

Interested in working together? I’m available for hire. For more information on hiring me to help you with your writing, blogging, or music public relations needs, please use my contact page.
