lauren_40I grew up outside Portland, Ore. near my family’s winery, with a couple alpacas and a loud and passionate family of Italians – all with a strong desire to discuss and explore the world. I’ve traveled to nearly every continent and have become obsessed with the intersectionality between cultures and people, and the similarities that make us all human.

I’m passionate about journalism because it provides an opportunity to continue to explore new parts of our world while exposing issues, informing citizens, and contributing to a system of honest, necessary communication.

At BU, I’ve written for the Daily Free Press, I’m a current travel writer and photographer for the BU Buzz, and a member of the BU Outing Club.
