In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife Eryn and taking their dog Izzy to the park and on long walks, including any activities with a tennis ball or treats. You can also find Lawrence at the gym, or a movie theater checking out the latest flick. Have a story idea for Lawrence to share? Drop him a line!
