Thanks for visiting my website! My name is Loren, A.K.A “Lo.” I have always had a passion for media. In fact, growing up I imagined a career in traffic reporting with my own segment, “Lo on the Go.” I know, not typical from the average child who dreams of being an astronaut or a doctor!
After earning a bachelors degree in Multimedia Journalism from Florida Atlantic University, my passion for media expanded beyond broadcast — and a small dream of traffic reporting — to writing and reporting breaking news in political, national, international, money and health topics. It was not only a passion of mine, but became second nature. My slogan quickly changed from “Lo on the Go” to “Lo in the Know.”
My media experience extends to managing an editorial team at a major news organization during daily, night and weekend shifts. For four years, I was responsible for breaking news, assigning writers, editing copy, writing, posting videos and photos, and overseeing email alerts to our subscribers (one of the largest in the nation). In addition to running the site, I also undertook all scheduling, training and calendars for our editorial department.
Most recently, I’ve had the pleasure of producing a one-hour live TV program five days a week on health related topics. These shows are heavily produced, including everything from scripting to working with colleagues on graphic design and video editing to ensure quality content appropriate for the air. Producing these programs require quick turnarounds, hard deadlines and exceptional interviewing skills — all of which I excelled at.
In addition, I have taken advantage of numerous freelance opportunities ranging from writing feature stories in arts and entertainment for a local newspaper in Palm Beach County, Fla. to video editing for social media influencers.
I have also worked as a student producer and editor for an NPR-style online radio production based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., entitled South Florida Journal.
I pride myself on having a self-directed work style and strong organizational and communication skills.
My strengths include (but are not limited to): Writing, editing, ghostwriting, photography, interviewing, organizing content on websites; Proficient in PC and MAC OSX, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Microsoft Publisher, Content Management Systems (Kentico, Blogspot, WordPress), HTML formatting, social Media sites (Hootsuite, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, etc.) Audacity, and Adobe Audition; Scripting programs (iNews, ENPS)
I am currently located in Miami, Fla.
