I’ve been telling stories since before I could write, put on my first play at age 7, and directed my first movie at age 12. These days, I tell coming-of-age stories about women of all ages.

2018_Laurels_SCRIPTS_FINAL Black with transparentMy drama pilot HOMEGROWN was named a 2018 NYTVF Scripts Official Selection, as was noted in Deadline. It was also named the Best Original Drama script in the 2019 CineStory TV Fellowship, and I will be attending their 2019 retreat.

As of January 2019, my drama pilot MISS MONTGOMERY is just starting to go out. I have a couple new projects for film and TV in development, and am submitting to fellowships and shopping HOMEGROWN.

I am an alumna of Alan Kingsberg’s TV Writing workshop, as well as of the Sackett Street Writers’ Workshop, where I workshopped part of my novel about the Spanish Civil War.

As a founder of Abbott & West Productions, I produced, hosted, and edited the food and travel web-series The Innocents Abroad with my co-founder, Nora Chovanec.

I’m a member of New York Women in Film and Television and Glass Elevator.
