Laura House Gotham wordsmith

Laura brings luggage-loads of experience as a seasoned wanderer to team Smith. Meanderings have included: a semester spent studying art history and carbo-loading in Italy; too many early mornings filming riveting government press events at the Pentagon and US Capitol for C-SPAN; a stint as a lumberjill splitting firewood in Maine; and several years penning commercials about everything from lawnmowers to contact lenses (one that was even parodied on Saturday Night Live). Prior to ditching Brooklyn coffee shops for our New York office, she was most recently chasing down stories for The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Martha Stewart Living.
