Hello! My name is Hilary Loren Smith and I was born and raised in Austin, TX. I attended St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Austin (go Spartans!), and–upon graduation–moved to Chicago, to attend Northwestern University (go Wildcats!) where I got my Journalism degree.
Upon moving to Chicago, I found that I no longer had to repress my nerdiness, and I have since have displayed my love of technology into a freelance writing career. After college, I briefly returned to Austin, where I interned with the telecommunications company that employs my father, before returning to Chicago to write.
Chicago is the city I currently live in with my beautiful husband and daughter. After becoming a parent, I now enjoy writing about family and parenting in the digital age (technology again!).
