Blue Lobster Tales

Blue Lobster Tales is our journey exploring the historical complexities of the Age of Sail in all corners of the Atlantic world – from the realities of colonial exploration and expansionism to the origins of the Golden Age of Piracy, and the final breaths of European imperialism. We’ll tell these histories where they happened and get there by any means necessary…whether on our sailboat, dinghy, motorcycle, airplane or good, old-fashioned foot power…


We hope you’ll come along for the ride!


Presenter. Producer.

Lauren is all about connecting people with history – passionately presenting the histories we explore! She is particularly interested in exploring how the past has impacted the present, and what similarities exist between historical events, people, places – and today.

Lauren’s background in a museum environment and a masters in anthropological archaeology, have combined to shape her love for connecting people with history.

And while Lauren is continuing to push new boundaries with her writing and historical knowledge, she is very focused on learning more about the development of public engagement initiatives, particularly when it comes to sites or histories that might be lost.


Director. Producer.

Alex is mainly concentrated on the direction and production of our projects. Most of his energy is focused on work behind the scenes – researching, writing, directing, filming, creating graphics and editing. But he will appear on screen from time-to-time.

Growing up in a creative household, Alex’s artistic pursuits have mixed with his professional background, including over a decade in the military and a masters in political history.

Alex is passionate about visually exploring connections between events, people and places in history. And is continuing to investigate these relationships in creative and innovative ways, from the research to the final video edit.
