About Laura Kranz

About Laura Kranz


I’m Laura, the person who named this website after herself. Welcome to my domain. (BAD INTERNET JOKE.)

This entire site is basically about me … but you’re probably on this page for the facts. Here’s some.

I live in the cloudiest city in the United States: the town of Bellingham, WA. We don’t get a lot of sunlight here, which is great for productivity—and my pale, pale skin.

My creative impulse is out of control. That’s more or less why this site exists—to give me a place to dump all my creative urges so I can get on with my life and create more things.

I’m an adrenaline junky—formerly into brash downhill skiing … until a poorly-executed trick gave me my third concussion. Now I just climb the occasional rock or tree.

I own an agency called Overthink Group.

I’m six feet tall. Just absorb that fact now so we can get the “wow, you’re tall” out of the conversation routine when we meet in person.

Even more about me

I know this is my about page, but before we go on, I have a single-question personality quiz for you:

I think personality tests are …

A) At the very least, interesting conversation starters
B) For dummies

If you chose (B) then your personality type is “high horse” and there’s nothing left on this page for you.

Here are some of my scores.

On the Myers Briggs, I’m an INTJ, though I sometimes score INTP. This basically means I score the way a robot would.

My top 5 strengths from the Clifton Strengthfinder are:

  1. Ideation (I come up with a whole lot of ideas)
  2. Achiever (I like to win)
  3. Command (I don’t like other people telling me what to do)
  4. Strategic (I create evil masterplans)
  5. Futuristic (I’m not exactly living in the moment)

According to the RHETI from the Enneagram Institute, I’m a type 5—the Investigator. This means I probably value information and competence above most other things.
