Tagline
H.R.H. Princess Plutogirl, aka Laurel Kornfeld, writer, actress, singer, and amateur astronomer.
Introduction
I am an actress, singer, freelance writer, and amateur astronomer who is actively advocating the planet status of Pluto and all dwarf planets. For more on Pluto, see my Pluto Blog at http://laurelsplutoblog.blogspot.com .

My acting reel can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNQLssl9WkU .

Current New Horizons correspondent for "Spaceflight Insider" and writer for "The Space Reporter." I am known to many as @plutosavior

I am an eternal, free-spirited child who proudly refuses to "grow up" or "get old" and takes pride in being a cute redheaded finger wrapper.
Bragging rights
Played characters living, dead, and undead in various horror films. Also have experience in theater and doing Renaissance Faires. Egalitarian supporter of the Occupy movement. Everyone should have an HRH title! Planet Pluto is not dead and never had "it coming." I am proud to be actively keeping Planet Pluto alive!
