Laura Yumi Snell

Programs Director

Laura Yumi is an LA- and NYC-based classical pianist-turned-actor/producer/Zoom master. She was a singer-puppeteer in the Broadway tour of AVENUE Q, and she’s worked on stages and screens from Manhattan to Moscow and everywhere in between. After receiving her Masters in Acting from Harvard/A.R.T. in 2018, she co-founded SoHo Shakespeare Company and produced over a dozen shows in NYC. In addition to starring in the indie feature CARSICK and the short EAT, SURF, LOVE (both scheduled for release this year), she wrote two pilots and a feature thanks to the Harvardwood Writers Program. Laura Yumi is committed to teaching and inspiring young artists to pursue their dreams, and she is thrilled to be a part of the Harvardwood team to coordinate programming that connects and elevates the artistic community. She loves matcha lattes, mindfulness exercises, and animals...especially her rescue dogs, Diamond and Rosie.
