About Laura

Experience: I'm a journalist, author and adjunct professor of narrative nonfiction. I've written for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Literary Hub, and The New Republic. I'm the author of two books: "The Long Shadow of Small Ghosts: Murder and Memory in an American City," (Scribner, 2016) and a biography of Chef Eduardo "Lalo" Garcia, which will be published by W.W. Norton in 2021. I hold a BA in International Studies from Vassar College and an MFA in Nonfiction from Goucher College. Much of my work is related to immigration, but I've also reported deeply on science, crime, health, politics, food, and media. Audio Experience: I trained in Hindenburg at the Duke Center for Documentary Studies and in Pro Tools as a Futuro Studios intern. Currently, I'm the Associate Producer of Season 2 of iHeartRadio's Who Is? I've also produced segments for VPM's Social Distance Assistance and NPR's Latino USA. What I'm looking for: Editing Script writing Story development Research Reporting
