Hi 👋 — I'm Lauren Davis Smith, a Senior Director of Engineering, working @Automattic on @WooCommerce

Locale - CST

I live on 3½ acres outside of Dallas, Texas with my wife, twin boys, and two dogs.


I have an active mind and am curious by nature which means that at any given time I have a plethora of projects spanning from home automation, gardening, cooking, gaming, or building things.

I greatly enjoy following and watching IndyCar and Formula 1


I love to travel and in 2019 spent 54 days across 2 continents and 4 countries. My favorite location to date has been pub crawling my way through Galway, Ireland.


Snow skiing is my activity of choice and I've skiied in many of the popular ski destinations in the United States. My most memorable ski trip was skiing at Mt. Baldy because we were able to ski and make it back to the beach in the same day.
