On an average day, Laura does everything from design and development, learning how to run a sustainable not-for-profit, and trying to make privacy, and rights-respecting technology, accessible to a wide audience. You can find her making design decisions, writing code, nudging icon pixels, or interpreting a privacy policy into something humans can understand. Sometimes she speaks at conferences and writes articles too.
