About Me


I want to experience something new


Hi, my name is Lauren. I was a teacher in a small, depressing, agricultural town in California for four years. I started to hate my job. I realized that life is too short to hate anything, so I quit and moved to Australia for a while! Maybe this is the year that I will see the world!

I have lived on the central coast of California in the United States. This is a wonderful area for hiking, swimming, wine-tasting, golfing, surfing, eating, fishing, shopping, museums, music, going to the beach, staying in shape, and socializing. I enjoy many of these activities in my spare time. I cherish my time with family and friends. I get along well with children and adults. I have a soft spot for animals and like to learn new ways to help preserve our environment. I’m great with pets and easy to live with. I am honest and caring. I love to laugh. I like most types of music, but especially classic rock ‘n roll. I like to experience new things and grow as a person.

Right now I am in Sydney Australia for at least six months and would like to travel, meet people, and see as much as possible.


Still developing that...I like to enjoy life, get out of the house, and laugh as much as possible.
