Hi, I'm Heather

I'm a freelance writer and full-time front-end developer.

I live in London with my girlfriend and our two cats.


I write about politics, technology and pop culture from a queer perspective. If I'm really lucky, I get to write about all three at once.

I'm a regular contributor for Autostraddle and my work has been featured by Polygon, The Establishment and the Huffington Post.

If you're interested in working with me, send any freelance enquiries to hello@heatherlauren.me.


I'm a developer at Hactar, where I help organisations with a social conscience build digital products.

I'm one of Code First: Girls' Ones to Watch 2017 and my love affair with CSS is going to be be made into a Titantic-esque romantic epic any day now.

My dream project is to build a virtual assistant that will only play Africa by Toto.
