Hey! I’m Laurie, a writer-maker-thinker-feeler-puppy-chaser originating from Naples, Florida. I am a freelance burrito-eater and avid slow jogger who covers small amounts of distances. Hobbies include traveling, reading, trapeze, aerial yoga, trimming my own bangs, and defending pop stars.

This blog began in early 2014 as a place for Laurie to discuss issues pertaining to Laurie. It has since grown to include ramblings about adulthood, creativity, productivity, pop culture, travel, and occasional musings of my personal and professional life.

More seriously (yawn), I love to spread words and ideas that hit on people’s emotional nerve and funny bone. I dropped out of college to pursue a more authentic path of life-long learning and creating. I’ve worked for an assortment of brands, agencies, and non-profits doing copywriting, event planning, and marketing. I now work forย Praxis, a one-year startup apprenticeship program for young people who want more than college.

On the rare occasion I’m not hunched over a laptop screen, I enjoy eating copious amounts of Mexican food, gushing over vapid entertainment news, and being a trapeze/aerial arts enthusiast.

Oh, and I’m always excited to meet nice new people – if you’d like to inquire about a potential project or would just like to say hello, please get in touch! – barberlaurie@gmail.com
