Larry is a public speaker with decades of experience engaging people's attention and interest with nothing but words. In the last several years, he's applied those skills to entertaining with magic as an amateur performer. His main interest in magic is cards, in particular the amazing things that can be done with an ordinary deck, even borrowed and shuffled. He also enjoys mentalism, especially billet work, and a few other kinds of magic. His obsessive curiosity as a student of magic, combined with his sometimes unfortunate perfectionism, has lead him to tinker so much that he has unintentionally become a creator of magic as well.
