Hello! I’m Laura. Thanks for visiting my blog.

I’m a startup founder turned coder turned data scientist. Right now I’m getting my Master’s in Computer Science from the University of Chicago and most likely working on projects related to startups, data, and whatever else comes my way.

I’m passionate about helping people build things, education, urban gardening, hummus, startups, and divvying. Here are a few things I’ve built (or helped build) so far.



During my software engineering apprenticeship, I discovered that writing is one of the best ways to learn. So now I write to learn and to improve my writing skills. This is why you might read a blog about a challenging topic at school or work one day and my opinions on life another day.

Now for some of my favorite Marc Johns pieces.
