Actress, Musician, Host, Voice Over Actor and Coach
Laurie is a San Francisco native who grew up in a family of professional actors and musicians (she says her childhood was like “The Partridge Family” meets “This is Spinal Tap”). After trying out a plethora of careers after college, including a long stint as an International Flight Attendant, she finally decided to hop on the family entertainment bandwagon… and she never looked back.
With an adventurous spirit and an un-quenching thirst to learn more about the craft, she studied in London (RADA), Paris, Berlin, L.A. and of course San Francisco. Her many TV Credits include appearances on Chance, Medium, I (Almost) Got Away With It and numerous commercials for companies such as Blackberry, Volkswagen, Raleys, Wal-Mart, Metro PCS, Nokia and Wells Fargo. Known as the “Original Voice of Google Voice”, she has been heard on countless radio and T.V. commercials such as Channel 36 (L.A.), Cisco, Kaiser Permanente, 24 Hour Fitness, Symantec, First Republic Bank and TV.com.
Film credits include “Redwoods”, David Arquette’s, “The Butler’s In Love”, “Stray” and “My Eleventh”. She’s next slated to play Rene Pichette in the upcoming feature film “The Mendoza Line”, (filming June 2013). Theater credits include the role of “Amy” in Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Company”, “Gal” in the touring production of “Just for Laughs” and most recently Claudia Roe in “Enron”. You can currently see her on national TV as she is in her third year as Movie Review Host for Common Sense Media and most days you can hear her unique and recognizable voice on the Radio as she is the voice behind all Raleys, Nob Hill and Bel Air commercials.
