Laurie is a professional Writer, Story Consultant, and Creative Catalyst who brings a unique combination of art, heart and soul to every endeavor.

Her remarkable track record includes serving Fortune 500 companies and City, State and Federal agencies, as well as producing original content.

A self-motivated, empathetic team member and project leader with a filmmaking background, Laurie is skilled at shepherding multi-pronged projects from conception to completion.

The soul of an artist, the enthusiasm of a beginner, the expertise of a pro.

Fostering effective storytelling isn’t just a job to Laurie; it’s an opportunity to learn, grow, and collaborate on a sophisticated level. She cares so much about helping stories fulfill their potential, she becomes invested as a friend and mentor to each project, going far beyond mere on-time and on-budget delivery.

Laurie is also known for her intuitive grasp of grammar, and ability to wordsmith text for maximum impact.  

She hones her storytelling craft by developing original inclusive and female-forward screenplays.

Passion for empowering creativity.

As a Story Consultant and Creative Catalyst, Laurie provides encouraging and honest coaching, and actionable in-depth feedback on books and screenplays. 

She co-edited two anthologies in the popular Now Write! creative writing series with her aunt, Sherry Ellis and went on to produce Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror on her own.

Laurie hosted teleconferences for the International Screenwriters’ Association for four years. She has organized and been a guest on writers’ conference panels, and has taught creative writing and screenwriting workshops to diverse audiences.

Filmmaking background.

Laurie’s career began when she earned her BFA in Film Production from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, where she stood out as one of the few women in the program at the time – a significant milestone that proved her tenacity and ability to break barriers.

She freelanced as a Production Coordinator and Script Supervisor before working at two video companies where she oversaw productions for VH-1, Clairol, Bank of America and The Gap. She was also the Post-Production Manager for the Myst Riven video game.

Laurie has directed and produced, or co-produced, internationally well-received short films and music videos. She also wrote, produced, directed and edited three short “audio movies” in the Anti-Heroine podcast series.
