Laurence came on aliyah with his wife and three children in 1994, living always in Raanana. Previously a chartered surveyor in London.

A keen cyclist, he has ridden many times for charitable causes - for Norwood Ravenswood, Beit Issie Shapiro, and as one of the founders of the Alyn Hospital Ride from 2000 until the present. He rode from Berlin to London in 2018 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport; and in 2019 he participated in a ride from Florence to Assisi in Italy to honour Gino Bartali the legendary Italian cyclist.

He also plays electric guitar in a rock band.
