For over 40 years Larry travelled the world working in the media as a writer/photographer/broadcaster, key-note speaker and filmmaker.
His first adventure at age 27 was to Peru in 1976 to explore the Andes and the western reaches of the Amazon. Travelling alone in the Peruvian Andes, Larry was targeted, robbed of his passport and possessions and eventually arrested as an unidentified suspect of drug trafficking, to spend time in a Lima Prison.
