Good Morning Denver! You have 14ish Hours left to vote. Be sure to do so!

Good morning everyone!

We are a little over 12 hours away from the closing of polls in Denver, and its time to vote! There are a lot of issues related to transit, mental health, and other important municipal issues that need to be voted on. Denverite, a digital publication that mostly covers Denver related issues, has both a state and local guide that I found informational. In general, I am in favor of anything that improves urban infrastructure and multi-modal forms of transportation, but have chosen not to make my endorsements statewide public (Local endorsements are here) outside of encouraging everyone to vote for candidates dedicated to urban and alternative infrastructure issues statewide.

Be sure to turn in your ballot by 7 PM on Tuesday.

I’m Back… Hope you had a good weekend.

Good morning everyone!

Last night around 8:15, I returned with a severely oversized suitcase filled with souvenirs from Atlanta and Athens to Denver! I am safely at home right now, and in full recovery mode until I go back to my “day job” on the 31st (yes, Halloween day).

I got a TON of pictures on my trip, including of new bike infrastructure that has emerged in Athens, things related to MARTA I thought were cool, my breakfast at Waffle House, and everything in between. Will start writing regularly again/responding to emails tomorrow once my sleep schedule is relatively normal/I finish my end of the month errands,

And My Vacation Starts… Today!

Happy Thursday!

Just a heads up to everyone. I will be taking a vacation to Georgia from the 25th (Today) to the 30th of October. Given that I will not consistently have access to a computer during this time, I may be answering my email/responding to questions at a slower rate than usual, so please be patient if you need to get ahold of me.

On a related note, for this Throwback Thursday, here is a picture of me shortly after I graduated from University of Georgia! Have a good weekend!

Hello World!

Good Morning Everyone!

The time is 8:30 MST on Friday the 19th, and this is the relaunch of my professional writing website!

Ever since I could wield a pen, I have been a voracious writer. While I have grown over the years when it comes to writing style, I still make a goodwill effort to write daily, and it has paid off. Over the years, I have written hundreds of articles, from blog posts to opinion pieces, that have found their ways into various newspapers and publications, including the Ventura County Star, Athens Banner Herald, and DenverUrbanism, which I currently write for.

How to Navigate This Malarkey

As the primary author of the website, I would humbly suggest to start on the “Who Is Loren?” section to get a brief primer of who writes these articles. If interested, check out “Current Writing Projects” to see the various writing activities that I do in my current place of Denver. “Past Writing Projects” primarily details things I wrote from about 2014-2016. Any questions or inquiries about getting me to write for your publications/general inquiries should be directed to the “Contact” page. Hope you enjoy!
