“When I was a little girl, my Mom always told me “words are your friends.” I doubt she had any idea what adventures and opportunities those words of encouragement would open for me. When I found my voice as a writer I finally understood what she meant! I get lost in my stories, my character’s world, and their perspective on life. My writing has made me a better actress. You can’t tell someone else’s story without having empathy for that person. You can’t create an honest, fully dimensional character without understanding them, looking at what happened to them at five or ten years old that changed their point of view…”
Laura’s writing took off in 2015 when her sketch comedy series The Laura Show was picked up by Amazon. Laura quickly became known as the honest, funny girl; creating her own modern millennial fairytale of female driven comedy. Laura has created shows for Amazon, Universal, Funny or Die and Who HaHa to name a few. Her most resent project Millennial Complex “A State Of Mind With A Physical Address” is a single cam pilot centering around five millennial friend’s living in a LA high-rise. Watching the show, you can tell how much of Laura’s heart is in her work. She’s 110% hands-on from storyboarding to the editing room.
Laura is currently working on a number of projects including a very personal project, We Are Virginia Tech, based on the true story of the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre. Laura’s also in pre-prod for Female Bureau of Investigation. A single cam comedy merging the quirkiness of Parks and Recreation with the sisterhood and heart of Grey’s Anatomy.
“People have always fascinated me! As a writer you have this amazing gift to imagine the rest of a stranger’s day. The people they love, their home, the things that make them laugh. You have the power to create a whole world for someone you’ve never even met. There’s something so powerful and exciting in that!”
