Biography and career
Lawrence Hertzog was born in Flushing, Queens, in New York City but grew up in Teaneck, New Jersey. When he was 16 years old, Hertzog quit Teaneck High School to pursue a career in horticulture.

Through his career, Lawrence has worked as a writer for shows like Hart to Hart, J.J. Starbuck, and Stingray.
