Hi. My name is Larry and I have been writing for about 5yrs. I always knew that I could write, but never took it serious. I thought that I would make a living as a football player. That did not work out and at the tender age of 41 I found myself. I do a little poetry, some journals, but I really like telling stories and giving my openion. If you have a Diary that you would like to turn into a book, I am the person to see. Call on me if you need a guest writer for your Blogg, Newspaper, or Journal.

I worked on several extreme automobile stunts for a DVD titled Brotherhood of Destruction. I set up most of the cameras, both under and in the car for the driver shot experience. I was responsible for shooting all of the very close handheld camera work of automobile stunts, which included long distance jumps and various crashes with pyrotechnics. I also shot several of the stunts hanging from the open door of a helicopter. When the stunts were not being performed, I did the documentary footage of the stunt driver and the prep work from behind the scenes. I was employed by NBC WESH-TV news. I worked the sunrise news and was responsible for floor directing and supervising on-set operations. I also worked robotic cameras, jib, and arranged the studio lighting. I worked as an in-studio operations camera operator for the national live talk show The Daily Buzz. I performed all of the specialty shots with the roving camera as well, with live shots with special guest stars, animals, and live bands. I also completed a broadcasting internship with the Orlando Magic Basketball Team, where I shot and edited, for the team, as well as logging plays and other duties. In high school I worked on the production team at KACB-TV. This experience, as well as my previous work history gives me years of actual working experience in broadcast television and video production.
