After years of creating top selling apparel for iconic sport brands, he now supervises and mentors a team of his own. He has received awards and praise for innovative ideas in the fashion industry. His goal is to inspire the youth, show them that their environment doesn't dictate their future, only hard work and determination does.

He is the leading American voice in Mexico and advocate pertaining to Mexico-U.S. relations for almost 20 years, being continuously interviewed by media in both countries. Since 2004, he was asked by the GOP to serve as Chairman of Republicans in Mexico with a clear mandate to get out the vote and also defend the conservative ideology through all outlets including television, radio, print, schools and universities, plus also promote its Presidential candidates; he has been intrinsically involved in the campaigns of reelection for: President George W. Bush, for John McCain (part of his Mexico City visit as candidate), Mitt Romney and President Donald Trump in both his bids and also in his Mexico City visit on August 2016 (as candidate). In the professional sphere, Larry, out of the Houston office, is the Latin America Managing Partner for Chicago based DHR International, one of the largest search firms in the world, where he has placed top executives both at the Board and executive level. He has been fully committed to this industry since 2012. For 20 years, he has been CEO of American companies. He has worked for U.S. business interests close to two decades, representing American investment in Mexico. Whilst being the CEO of The American Chamber of Commerce of Mexico, he was instrumental in supporting important initiatives and legislative proposals, as well as being critical of those that would hurt Mexico and its investors. In 2005, he brought together the three Presidential candidates: Lopez Obrador, Madrazo & Calderon, a task that no other organization did before or after. Prior to this, he was the Managing Director for Dallas based American Airlines in Mexico, position he reached at 24 years of age.

Larry is also very active in community work as a former Rotary Club President and founder, United Way Board member and former Board member for Habitat for Humanity. Graduated with a bachelor’s in business administration and set to graduate in 2023 with a Master’s in Business Administration from Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business, he also has two honoris causa doctorates in issues pertaining to the bilateral relations.
