Who is Lars Vargas?

I’m a guy who grew up outside of Buffalo, NY. I had an unremarkable childhood. My parents, although divorced, should sleep without fear that I will appear on Oprah or Jerry Springer with gory details about weird stuff that happened to me. It didn’t.

At 19, my father, who lived in Central Florida, invited me to come live down there. Not much was happening in Buffalo at the time, so I moved. I settled in Winter Haven, and after languishing there for about eight years, moved to Orlando.

My first trip to Las Vegas was in 1996. I had a client who needed me to work a show booth for him. I fell in love instantly. This town had energy that I have encountered nowhere else. I’m not a gambler, and my hard partying is behind me. It’s purely atmospheric. It was then that I decided that I will live here some day.

In 2000, I met a gorgeous woman and in 2001 she became Mrs. Vargas. In Las Vegas. We were still living in Orlando, but knew that we would eventually come out here to live.

In mid-2005, opportunity presented itself and we moved to Las Vegas. For the first time in my life, I feel like I belong where I live and I live where I belong. I am Lars Vargas. I live in Las Vegas. This is my life.
