Laurence Pevsner


For his college thesis, Laurence wrote a novel featuring a speechwriter.  One year later, in an example of life imitating art, he joined the West Wing Writers team.

Previously, Laurence worked on the reelection campaigns of Congressman Jim Himes and President Barack Obama. He learned how to edit copy at Biteback Publishing, a London publishing house, and honed his fact-finding skills as a research assistant to Thomas Docherty, a United Kingdom Member of Parliament.

Laurence is a magna cum laude graduate of Amherst College, where he majored with distinction in Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought and served as head editor for the political and humor publications on campus. At Amherst, Laurence won the Kellogg Award and the Bancroft Prize in public speaking, and delivered the Senior Assembly address.

Laurence grew up in Riverside, Connecticut. During that time, he told most people he was from New York. Now, he lives in Brooklyn, New York, and tells most people he’s from Connecticut.
