About Larry

I'm a highly passionate business & engineering professional. A family man who enjoys the simpler things in life. When I was 4 years old, I threw my favorite electric "Chu Chu Train" into a tub of bath water; yes I broke it! No one in my family knew how to fix it and it was devastating to me. This event set me on the course to be the ultimate problem solver, hence I'm an engineer.

I've been solving challenging engineering problems for over 22 years for the top telecommunication companies including: AT&T Mobility, Cingular Wireless, OmniPoint, Voicestream Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint/Nextel, Ericsson, Nokia and Nortel.

I've built many things over the years including: a TV, radio, hi-fi speakers, computers, computer networks, a miniature airplane launch pad, websites, computer games and now I've built a mobile a gaming platform that's going to revolutionize mobile competitive gaming!

2 years ago, I was faced with a seemingly impossible problem, my competitive gaming app was rejected by Google. Come to find out, over the last 9 years Google had banned all eSports competitive gaming apps from Google Play including Skillz.com and Worldwinner. To make a long story short, as of today we are the only company in our space with Google as a distribution partner.

We have the only competitive gaming app that's been allowed for distribution on Google Play, making us the go-to solution for 1.8B Android gamers. With this rare, unfair competitive advantage and with Google's Android owning 76% global market share, we are positioned to become a dominate player in the $68B mobile gaming space.
