Laurence brings the UK to UK. A British passport holder with a lifelong passion for all things USA, Laurence graduated from the University of Reading in England with a Bachelor of Arts degree in United States Studies. The degree included an exchange program to Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania and – after a career in broadcast radio in Great Britain as an announcer, journalist and news director - Laurence returned there to earn his Master’s degree in Liberal Arts. He comes to the University of Kentucky from Ohio University, where he worked as an Education Abroad Program Coordinator.
Laurence flew before he could walk, taking his first flight abroad as a baby, and in the intervening years he’s traveled extensively (including 48 of the 50 US states). He rates Venice, Italy; Pismo Beach, CA; and Lock Haven, PA as among his favorite places, with Cuba as the most fascinating country he’s visited to date.
