A Bit Of History


If I could choose a symbol for my life and career it would be a circle.

I came to New York City to study theater and acting at the renowned Circle In The Square Theatre Professional Workshop, 50th Street and Broadway. Circle's two-year program launched me into acting where I have been seen on all levels, off-off Broadway, off-Broadway and on Broadway, as well as regionally.

Acting Coach and Teacher

In 1996, I returned as a teaching artist to Circle In The Square, where I am currently on faculty. I joined the permanent faculty in 2002. What I have found is that my acting informs my coaching and teaching and my coaching and teaching informs my acting.

I have come full circle.

Public Speaking Coach

In 2007, I expanded my teaching into the Public Speaking arena helping actors and non-actors alike. Since then, my work with professionals of all professions simply exploded. My theater background, first as actor, then as teacher, elevates my coaching one step above my peers. I know what my clients are going through because I have been in their shoes; I have been there, done that and I get it. Add to that my keen observational instincts, my laser focus on your needs, not mine, and intense concentration results in tailored instruction you cannot get anywhere else. Larry does not impose a system on you, but rather delves deep into your particular issues and devises a plan to bring you to the next level.

I hope in these pages you will come to know me as the Coach you need for your next business or Public Speaking presentation. I hope you will come to know me as the Teacher and Coach you need for your next audition, scene or role. Or come to know me as the Actor you should hire for stage or film.

A Footnote

Besides being a Coach, Teacher and Actor Larry is apparently a Chesapeake Bay Retriever or even a Golden Retriever.

Several years ago when I first played the game Gone2The Dogs, I found out I was a Chesapeake Bay Retriever (below left). My most recent play in 2018 now proclaims me, in my heart of hearts, as a Golden Retriever (below right). Try it for yourself, then come right back here.
