Lauren is passionate about blending business and narrative writing to create compelling pitches, proposals, and reports. Narrative design has shown her how complex, abstract ideas can be told in grounded, personal terms to reach a variety of readers.

Lauren manages Castalia’s day-to-day business development activities. Her areas of expertise are strategy writing, crafting compelling business pitches, and coaching people on how to deliver winning work. She is skilled in Plain English and guides others on the principles of clear, concise writing.

Her experience prior to Castalia includes policy advice to New Zealand’s Ministry for the Environment, business development support on multi-million-dollar proposals, and consulting services for technical writing and narrative game design.
