Los Angeles
Actress, Writer, Model, Burrito Enthusiast

Laura is SAG-AFTRA actor, writer, model, science geek, semi-nerd & animal lover.  A versatile actress, Laura enjoys jumping deep into troubled, dramatic characters and bouncing into quirky, comedic roles. She draws inspiration from many different artists, ranging from the endearing, classic charm of Audrey Hepburn, to the craft of Meryl Streep, to the fearless zaniness of Kristen Wiig and Amy Sedaris. Also, if she could have dinner with any dead celebrity, it would be Alfred Hitchcock.

Born in Texas, & raised in Oklahoma, Laura considers her state loyalty in the "gray" area. (She has an affinity for big hair and Dr. Pepper, and yet, has equal passion for tunes from the classic Roger & Hammerstein musical "Oklahoma!")

​Her love of performing and making people laugh started at a young age. She often tormented her family with pranks and practical jokes; she owned a whoopie cushion, rubber chicken, & hand buzzer all by the age of 5.  She would perform for friends & family in sketch shows written by her older sister Sarah. It wasn't until Laura was in 3rd grade that she and her sister got their hands on "Dad's video camera" a.k.a. "The Spielberg", & filmed several VCR tapes worth of sketches (which will one day make incredible blackmail material, should it ever emerge on YouTube.) As she grew older, she also found herself attracted to complex, dramatic roles and tragic characters. 

​Laura lives in Los Angeles, and lives fifteen minutes from the beach and never goes there. She studied acting at Playhouse West, reaching Advanced Level, and is a co-creator of the award winning sketch group, which was awarded "Best Sketch" at the 2012 LA COMEDY AWARDS.  She also co-produced/co-wrote/co-starred in "Pads", an original series currently in post-production. She also performs sketch comedy around town, and sometimes makes appearances on podcasts and at birthday parties.

​In her downtime, Laura enjoys painting and drawing, writing, and a good ol' fashioned nap.  And if you give her a burrito, she'll be your friend forever.
