Lauren is a Scottish aerialist and acrobat based in Glasgow. She grew up in Ayrshire and as a child competed as an acrobatic gymnast. While studying Chemistry at university, completing both a BSc(Hons) and PhD, she fell in love with trampolining and circus. From age 17-24 she had a very successful trampoline career, competing at national and international level and winning a number of medals and titles. Lauren discovered her passion for circus while working at French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts (New York) in 2009. Back in Scotland Lauren worked for Spinal Chord for 9 years teaching and performing, including performances at the National Museum of Scotland, O2 Academy, O2 ABC and The Gleneagles Hotel. She has also worked with Paper Doll Militia on their aerial theatre piece Warped, and is currently performing in the show Tarot by Feathers of Daedalus Circus. This year Lauren left her science career to pursue circus full time and she now teaches regularly for Aerial Edge and performs and delivers workshops throughout the UK.
