Hi, I'm Laura. I'm a writer, a translator, an editor, a teacher, and a designer. I do a lot of different things, but they all relate to languages and literature. I currently live in Berlin, Germany, where I am writing, freelancing, schlepping my kids to school (when it's open), and studying German.
As an undergraduate at Brown University, I studied Latin American Studies and Comparative Literature with a focus in literary translation. In 2010, I received a Master's degree in Romance Languages and Literatures from Harvard University, where, among other things, I researched the multilingual literature of Rhode Island.
I have worked as an English language teacher in Montevideo, Uruguay, and in Providence, Rhode Island, where I've also volunteered as a mentor to newly resettled refugees. I have worked as managing editor and digital editor at Harvard Review, and I've taught writing at the Harvard Extension School.
