He writes all types of business content from sales and marketing to technical content and operations. He also offers speech writing, presentation skills coaching, and email marketing services.

Larry started his career as a computer programmer, quickly turning his software design and development skills into an entrepreneurial career. He was the IT Manager for a Denver independent oil & gas company, which turned into an opportunity to launch a software company. Larry negotiated an ownership and royalty arrangement, designed an oil & gas enterprise software system, hired and managed technical and support staffs. In just over three years, he and his partners built the company, Excalibur, to $10M in revenues and 45 employees in three cities.

After 10 years managing Excalibur, Larry moved on to other entrepreneurial ventures including owning a printing franchise and a training company. Prior to starting The Write Touch, he served in various consulting and executive roles helping three other software companies grow their businesses. Two of those companies were eventually sold for seven figures.

Larry has a BA in Business Communications, served as a Big Brother twice, and is an Advanced Toastmaster. He and his wife enjoy movies, travel, and hanging out with special friends. They also cherish time with two adult children and two grandkids. Larry enjoys golf, reading, and jigsaw puzzles.

Helping other entrepreneurs navigate and conquer business and personal challenges inspires me. LoCo Think Tank is the vehicle that fuels that inspiration."
