abbr. Laura Michelle Kimball


  1. A nickname for an ambitious, young, impatient dreamer.
  2. A 20-something glamazon who is changing the world.
  3. A word warrior whose pen slays metaphors and tames dragons.
  4. A blog dedicated to exploring all of the above.


I’m a marketer, social media community manager, writer, blogger, and all-around content and communications girl. Words and language drive me wild and finding innovative ways to wrap them around each other is what I live for. Storytelling. It’s more than a buzzword; it’s a way of life.

I’m a producer of ideas, projects, and collaborations. I love connecting people and making things happen. Passion and drive is infectious, and something I’m proud to surround myself with everyday.

I’m a writer and social media strategist, who knows how to roll up her sleeves and get the work done. Curious what I can do for you? Shoot me an email or a tweet.

I hold a Masters in Writing with a concentration in Book Publishing and a Bachelors in English literature, both from Portland State University. Though, dollar words are not my specialty. My claim to fame: I was the first intern and author coordinator for Wordstock, the largest book festival in the Pacific Northwest. It was one of the most challenging experiences in my life and I’m proud to say that the festival is running strong.

I burn rubber on the weekends and have a crazy obsession with lifting weights. I’ve been making bobbin lace since I was four years old and someday I will bring handmade lace back into fashion through intricately designed, fingerless lace gloves.

My indulgences are artisan coffee; beautiful, white, Belgian draft beer; and cake. And I would love to meet you over any of these things, be it virtual or IRL. I am the happiest when surrounded by stacks and stacks of books and the love of my closest friends. My husband is an artist and a dynamic force in my life.

Current projects include:

  • Global social media team member at HTC
  • Writer and social media strategist for-hire (for those who want to “pick my brain”)
  • Always kicking ass at kicking ass
