Credits and Bio
A born troublemaker, Laura grew up in Portland, Oregon and spent most of her youth inventing get rich quick schemes. She learned many important lessons. Namely, that there is no gold inside regular rocks. After high school, Laura moved to New York where she immersed herself in the theatre program at Marymount Manhattan College. Four years later, she walked away with a BFA in acting and an ironclad gaydar. Since moving to Los Angeles, Laura has written and performed in dozens of sketches for both video and stage. Her work has been featured on CollegeHumor, Funny Or Die, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, and the illustrious Scary Mommy.
Laura’s pilot with Avalon TV, 15 TO LIFE, is based on her off beat (and unusually long) relationship with her husband. It sold to YouTube in 2018. In 2019, she wrote for the family series, DWIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR. She is currently a staff writer for BIG CITY GREENS on The Disney Channel. Laura honed her writing and improv skills at Second City Hollywood, and regularly performs around Los Angeles with her two person improv group, Virginia Slims. When she’s not writing or improvising, Laura is either playing basketball, coaching basketball or mothering her three kiddos.
