About Larry

Larry was born and raised in Southern California. In his senior year of high school he decided he would take the path of a self made man vs a college diploma, what he now calls a “dumb move”. However, things have worked out well for him. He am not anti-education by any means, but he does feel that the pendulum has swung too far in the opposite direction. Going to a four year university regardless of how much money you take out in loans vs. getting an education in something that is your passion is his concern.

Larry has 5 beautiful children and a wonderful wife and says “that is the true reason for any success I may have stumbled into in the business world”. He is the Director of Marketing for a manufacturer in the transportation industry.
