Hello, I’m Laura Kirsop from London. I'm into education, tech, loud music, pop culture, tattoos, swimming and cycling.

I began my career as a primary school teacher, moved on to run Code Club in the UK and now work as a Product Manager at FutureLearn where I lead the Learner Experience strategy and team. 


I used to be in an indie-pop band called Internet Forever and now I'm in a heavy band called Ex People & a choir called Some Voices. I love pop music, riot grrrl, hardcore punk and noise rock.

I've written lots of things, from zines about the end of the world to articles for Wired. I regularly nerd out about comics, TV and pop culture on my Tumblr.


I like speaking at events, writing things and advising early stage start-ups so get in touch for a chat.
