Hi, I'm Loren
I'm a lead software engineer at The Atlantic, where I work on publishing platforms, frontend architecture, and developer experience. Before The Atlantic, I was a full stack developer at New America, where I led data visualization projects and maintained a custom Django-based CMS.
I don't keep this portfolio up-to-date anymore, but you can find some older writing, projects, and fun things I've made below.
