Larry’s motto is “take the road less travelled.” After earning his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Georgia Tech he built a lab for a flavor and fragrance company (where he was responsible for manufacturing the flavoring for Fresca) earning two patents for a process used to manufacture additives to be used at Savannah River Nuclear Plant to remove radionuclides from the waste stored in the leaking underground storage tanks there.
He moved on to running chemical plants, learning Chemical Engineering on-the-job, as Operations Manager as well as Project Manager, Lab Manager, Quality, Safety & Environmental Manager, ran Packaging & Shipping and was Emergency Response Team Leader. He was responsible for implementation of an SAP Enterprise Resource Planning system for his plantsite and led a successful ISO 9002 reregistration as well. And he earned an MBA from Pepperdine University.
When the Montreal Protocol regulations caused his plant to shut down he moved from Los Angeles to Victoria, BC in Canada where he bought a restaurant & sold it, bought a franchise business & sold it and was a financial advisor for a time. He lives there with his teenage son where he hikes, reads and writes & blogs about business.
