Hi, I’m Laura.
Kids have a million questions about everything, but I never grew out of it. I write to satisfy my curiosity, whether it’s about a pioneering aerial photographer, a 300-year-old British hedge or the James Webb Telescope.
I’ve been a regular contributor to WIRED and Hyperallergic, though my work also pops up in places like Smithsonian Magazine, the Atlantic, the Guardian, Texas Monthly, BBC Travel, Dwell, Artsy, and the Paris Review Daily.
I hold a Master of Arts from the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at New York University, where I specialized in Cultural Reporting and Criticism, and a bachelor’s degree in studio art from Missouri State University. I still love to draw and paint, as well as read and bake (lately, almond tarts).
