LAURA'S BIO

Hey, I’m Laura! 

I’m a twenty-something Frederick County native and proud of it!

I can easily say that music is my oxygen. My life has revolved around it! Also, I’m a sucker for a good view. I swear 90% of the pictures on my iPhone are sunsets.

You’ll probably catch me wandering around downtown Frederick or walking through Baker Park!
