Born in Plant City, Florida, my family relocated to Pasco county, north of Tampa, to live on a small farm, making a concerted effort to be self-sufficient. As a teenager, I accepted a position as a nanny in Tampa and had the opportunity to travel a lot. Ultimately, I chose to locate to Lakeland where much of my family lives. I provide support services to entrepreneurs during the launch of their product or service, including but not limited to concierge and V.A. services. Additionally, I provide personal and administrative services to C-Level executive.

As a music teacher, I experience a lot of different situations. One time in particular, I had a 5th grade student ask me for a feminine product in the middle of class, but she didn't know how to use it. It amazed me that of all the things kids know nowadays, she didn't know something so essential. That's when I realized that I needed to teach more than music. I started Bizzle to educate young girls about their first menstrual cycles and to give parents materials and resources to bridge the gap when it comes to having that conversation. I believe in empowering both young girls and their parents to make an uncomfortable conversation more natural.

Great On Camera

Even though he works on both sides of the camera, Larry Becker is mostly known for his on-camera presentations for Fortune 100 companies, as a spokesman and a camera reviewer. Larry hosts conventions annually, he has hosted countless web based photography shows, live webcasts, authored camera and software tutorials, and served as an official NAB Show Live anchor as well as an on-camera trainer for Canon USA.

Larry spent years managing a video production team in the KelbyOne studios, with clients including Canon, B&H Photo, and others. Larry's latest book "Great On Camera" is the foundation of much of Larry's current coaching work.

When Larry isn’t on camera as a spokesperson, he coaches still shooters who want to learn video, and coaches on-camera talent to be great on camera.
