Get to Know Larry
Larry grew up in Scranton, PA. While in school, he originally had plans to become a music teacher as he was attaining his degree in Music Education. His life took a shift in career paths when he began working in the banking industry, working in wealth management as a private banker. This led him to other paths within banking, commercial and residential lending, and team leadership. He even assisted in the market-wide licensed banker program for the entire state of PA and was once voted Top 20 under 40 during his time at a bank that he worked for. He says, “I know there is no shortage of success, it just depends on who is willing to beat the sun everyday, work hard, and chase that success that dictates whether we live an average or a great life.” The positivity that Larry projects definitely can’t go without being noticed as his coworkers have even nicknamed Larry “Mr. Sunshine.”
During his free time, he trains and coaches at least 5 times a week at a CrossFit center. Larry is inspired by music, which is something he still holds close; he’s even said that if he could travel into the past, he would travel to Vienna in the 1700s to see Mozart conduct his own music.
