Hi, I'm Lauren 👋

My name is Lauren Razavi, and I'm a multimedia journalist and a digital maker focused on the intersection of technology, business, policy and human behaviour. My writing appears in leading media titles like Wired, The Guardian, Bloomberg and VICE.

I've been a remote worker and creative freelancer for the past 10 years with roles in the music, media and software industries. I've visited more than 40 countries and published upwards of 250 media stories in my career so far.

I'm a subject-matter expert in the future of work, especially remote work, work from anywhere, digital nomad visas, global internet culture, the creator economy and subscription living. I cover these topics in my weekly newsletter:

My previous roles include managing editor for the future of work at Google and future cities columnist at Inverse. I was a Guardian Masterclasses speaker between 2015 and 2018, and I've spoken at large-scale events such as London's Battle of Ideas and the Women of the World Festival. I've won numerous national and international awards, including IPSE’s Young Freelancer of the Year Prize in 2016 and UEA's Innovation and Impact Award in 2019.

I'm a graduate of the University of East Anglia in Norwich and a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts in London. I'm half-British and half-Iranian, and during six years as a foreign reporter and digital nomad, I've lived across the UK, Europe, the US, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia.
