Larry, a Southern California native, has been deeply immersed in the event industry for nearly 40 years. He boasts an extensive and impressive background ranging from the sales, operations, and group sales/management of a major theme park to becoming the founder and president of Team Play Events. For 25 years, the focus of this company has been on outdoor employee celebrations and events. Larry, who holds an MBA from Pepperdine, has a finely tuned understanding of business and marketing, which has led to his success within the event industry. Over the course of his career, Larry has managed and consulted with some of Southern California’s biggest venues and has been mentioned in event publications around the world. One of these venues includes Vasa Park – a private 30-acre outdoor event venue located in Agoura Hills. Vasa Park is not open to the public and is a one-of-a-kind, private, exclusive members-only venue that is canvased by indigenous trees that blanket the park with a beautiful, calming atmosphere. Vasa Park is home to nearly 200 employee appreciation picnics, birthday parties, and milestone/lifecycle events each year in addition to acting as the home to Camp Keystone, Southern California’s most successful summer day camp.
Beyond Larry’s business success, he and his wife, Ann, live in Sherman Oaks and enjoy spending time with their children and dogs. When Larry isn’t at the park or thinking about new ways to expand and improve Team Play Events, he enjoys spending time in his garage woodworking or behind his camera taking photos.
