Senior Vice President, Product Management, Design, and Analytics at eHealth

I hired Larry to help me build/recruit/hire and lead (on an interim basis) the user experience design team at eHealth, essentially from scratch. I’m extremely pleased with Larry’s work with us. I have worked with Larry for over a decade at previous companies like eBay and Yahoo, and he continues to impress me with his expertise in design thought leadership, his personable and collaborative style, and reliability and integrity. I highly recommend Larry and look forward to working with him well into the future.

CEO, Primal

Since July 2010 Larry has been an invaluable consultant and advisor to our firm. His knowledge, experience and contacts have helped us move our company forward in ways that would have been impossible without his involvement. We continue to benefit from his guidance and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Co-founder of Fluxible Conference

We invited Larry to speak at Fluxible 2013 and couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome. He delivered an inspiring talk titled "Designing for Love & Money", about the tensions designers face in doing what they love professionally and serving the needs of business.

Drawing on his deep experience as both designer and mentor, Larry helped everyone think through these issues and feel re-energized about their careers. He connected with the audience throughout the 2-day event, carrying the conversation forward and providing friendly encouragement -- so it's no surprise his talk was one of the highlights of the program.

Larry is such a motivating and passionate speaker to lead and inspire new strong user’s experiences.
