Hello! We're Lara and Donald, the daughter-father duo behind Stem Digital, based in central Scotland.

We created Stem Digital so we could work together making great websites and interesting science communication content.

When we're not staring at our computers we like to spend our time trying to live an eco-friendly life, traveling around Scotland in our campervan, and playing endless games of peekaboo with our little Toto.


Lara leads our website development, re-design, and maintenance services and builds the majority of our websites.
She read Biological Sciences at the University of Edinburgh and had a particular interest in statistical analysis and regenerative medicine. Lara has an eye for design and is interested in analytics and designing an effective user journey for the websites she builds. She loves really getting to know clients in order to fully understand how to best help them. Lara is motivated to build you a powerful website to help your business grow, take away some administrative load, and be a long-lasting and powerful tool for you to utilise. Get in touch with a query, or just to say hello!
