Laura is a food and travel photographer / writer who loves unique and local restaurants, culture-focused travel, and beautiful hiking adventures.
A native New Yorker, Laura grew up loving the Big Apple. However, in 2016 she decided to leave the rat race of NYC behind and head west to Denver, Colorado, where she is currently based.
Running NewDenizen.com and the @newdenizen Instagram account is a personal passion project for Laura. She currently works in corporate strategy. Prior to this, she worked at a variety of places — from scrappy start-ups to Fortune 100 mega-corps — working in editorial and product. She’s also contributed to various outlets as a freelance writer and photographer.
In her spare time Laura loves discovering exciting new places to eat and has never met a bowl of noodles she didn’t like. Since moving to Colorado she has developed a love of the outdoors and is a proud graduate of NOLS’s Wind River Wilderness Prime and Wilderness First Aid courses. When she’s not on a hiking trail, she’s getting her om on practicing yoga almost every day of the week or deciding on her next big travel adventure. Laura has visited 29 countries across the globe and plans to keep adding more each year.
Before becoming a food and travel blogger, Laura headed the award-winning NYC-based music blog The Modern Age and was a featured player in Lizzy Goodman’s book, Meet Me in the Bathroom, an oral history of the rebirth of rock ‘n’ roll in New York City between 2001-2011.
