Lauren Gordon, a Philadelphia native, graduated from Temple University's School of Communications and Theater in 2010 with a focus in Magazine Journalism.
Immediately after graduation, Lauren became the Assistant Editor of Philadelphia RowHome Magazine and since has done a multitude of freelance work for local publications.
Though writing is her first passion, food is a close second. In her time spent as an active journalist, she has done a lot of coverage on the local foodie culture. It is likely that you'll find her in her Brooklyn apartment baking or on her couch binge watching Netflix while she crafts.
