A native of West Virginia, Lora’s foray into acting started in theatre. From her first role as a tree at the age of 6, she went on to do summer stock, college, community, and professional theatre. Settling into Washington DC, she booked her first on-camera role on a national commercial for AOL. Numerous other commercials, industrial videos, voiceover, independent film, and TV roles soon followed.
She was a film critic and television co-host for the local DC cable TV entertainment show “Eclipse Magazine,” and she continued to work in theatre, performing with Woolly Mammoth Theatre/Young Playwright’s Theatre, Education and Entertainment Foundation in DC, Asian Stories In America Theatre and QBD Ink Theatre, along with other theaters in the Midwest, including Gallery Players in Columbus, Ohio.
Lora decided to move to Los Angeles to focus on film and television. In 2012, she was selected as a best performer for the online web site StarCast Auditions which seeks up and coming talent in Hollywood. She continues to perform as a company member of the Ruskin Theatre Group in Santa Monica, CA, where she has both acted and directed. She has also reunited with Eclipse Magazine as their LA correspondent where she interviews producers, show runners, directors, and celebrities for the online version of Eclipse Magazine.
Aside from acting, she has recently crossed over into producing. Using her experience as a film critic and filmmaking classes at the New York Film Academy in LA, CA, she makes her producer debut on the comedic short film “Game Of Scones”.
