Lauren O’Keefe is a journalist from Melbourne, Australia. She has recently completed the Graduate Diploma of Journalism at RMIT University.

Her interests lie in news writing, profile pieces and audio. She loves the process of sitting down with people, listening their stories and then shaping what she’s been told into something that can be shared.

Prior to returning to study, Lauren had a long and successful career working in web publishing at RMIT University. She has extensive CMS experience, including Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) and WordPress. On occasion, Lauren has been known to write HTML code and CSS.

Lauren has also had experience working with Adobe Creative Suite, especially Photoshop, Lightroom, Dreamweaver and Audition. She is a keen amateur photographer and has been taking photos for around 10 years. Her approach to photography is that the best camera is the one you have with you.

She is an enthusiastic recreational cyclist which had a strong influence over her choice in subject matter for her Journalism course.
