Howdy! I’m Lauren Michell Rabaino (Michell is my middle name. It’s pronounced like Michelle. My last name is Rah-bay-no.). I’m currently the news applications editor at The Seattle Times. Previously, I worked as a product designer for Publish2 and a UI designer for Spot.us. I also worked as the creative director for CoPress (when it still existed) and redesigned Jay Rosen’s Press Think.
Outside of journalism, I can be found on the golf course, curled up with a Kindle, mushroom foraging in the woods, or working on an awesome food app called Fork.
I am a California girl at heart– born and raised in Porterville, Calif., went to college in San Luis Obispo, Calif., lived in Los Angeles after college. These days I find myself up the I-5 a few states in beautiful Seattle, Washington where there are actually seasons and, occasionally, snow!
I am a learner, a teacher, helper and a giver — and I love what I do.
