About  “The Little Guy”


Larry graduated from CDI College of Business and Technology in 1995 with 2 diplomas, Computer Maintenance and Local Area Network Administration.  He was hired by CDI College as an instructor from 1995-1998.  It was here Larry learned how to train adults in the art of perseverance and coached them towards their career goals.  Larry also attained his Certified Novell Administrator designation during his tenure with CDICollege.


            From 1998 to 2002, Larry expanded his career to the Manufacturing sector.  He became the PC Support and Desktop Specialist for MAXXIM Medical Canada Ltd.  The role quickly grew and he became the Onsite IT Administrator where he added computer security experience, implemented a daily disaster recovery action plan, integrated networks including a major server upgrade (both hardware and Novell), rewired the office and manufacturing plant from Token Ring to Ethernet connected to a fiber optic backbone and integrated a Windows 2000 server with Novell, Data General Unix and Citrix servers. 


            After the servers were complete, he moved to the workstations, where he championed the campaign to upgrade 50 desktop PCs to industry standards, purchased and installed HP LaserJet printers, upgraded 12 IBM Thinkpads to include Citrix dial-in capabilities from across Canada.  Every PC was equipped with an information tag and documentation showing the install date, software installation, hardware configuration and location all on a PC tag, in a secure file cabinet and in an ACCESS database.  These jobs were in addition to the daily routine of maintaining the office daily functionality.  This meant upgrades and replacements were scheduled to be completed after hours and on weekends.


            From 2002 to the present, Larry has been working in the computer industry as a private tutor, computer maintenance technician, network technician and consultant while attaining his A+ certification and my Microsoft Certified Professional and Windows Systems designations. 


            Covid-19 came to stay.  With it, we saw the world change.  This included the onsite computer technician.  Larry started offering his services to his clients in an on-line setting.  Installation of remote desktop application and as long as said client had n internet connection, we were off to the races.  Alas, times were tough everywhere, and The Little Guy Computer Consultants closed its doors on December 31, 2021, succumb to the COVID-19 black hole.  Larry kept in touch with his end-user clients and continue to help them to this day if needed.  As he says, "You make a lot of friends along the way, why not help them out from time to time."


In 2022, Larry and his wife moved to Nova Scotia for a more peaceful lifestyle.  What he found was a new need for his talents and thus re-opened the business to serve his neighbours.  We now are mainly an online computer cleaning company which specialize in virus and malware cleaning and slow computer systems optimization.

As the ever-changing world evolves, there is one main philosophy Larry has followed throughout his career.  That is.


 “You first fix your client, and then you fix their equipment.”
