My earlier career comprised of working as a Market and Competitive Intelligence Manager and Director within marketing organizations of small to large hightech companies and various vertical industries. Thus, research, writing, reporting for key executives and leadership teams to assist in their strategic decision-making became my passion. During my latter 16 years with 8—layoffs, buyouts and downsizings, my entrepreneurial spirit took over-I’ve owned and operated several businesses.
Growing up I’d frequently hear the stories my dad would tell me about the Negro Baseball players. My dad, born and raised in Canada, truly loved playing with the Negro Baseball Teams when they traveled and barnstormed their way through Canada’s countryside.

I want to share Larry’s biography with the world, as his story stirred my soul, I hope it will do so for the reader. Larry’s story really touched me the day I met him and as I progressed through the interviews, what emerged was a stream of emotions, injustices, disappointments, shocking events and laughter. It’s proven to be a very interesting, enlightening and educational accumulation of knowledge and I’m grateful to Larry for having shared his life with me.
