Gary grew up in Missouri spending weekdays in St. Louis and the weekends on a cattle ranch in southern Missouri riding horses and canoeing. One of the best day's of his life included jumping out of a plane, rafting off a 30 foot waterfall, and 5 hours of pitch black spelunking in New Zealand. He's spent the better part of the last decade traveling the world, learning foreign cultures, surfing in Australia, and living in Europe's only Communist country without modern amenities.
A marketing advisor by trade and digital tech by default, Gary has taken a somewhat unchartered path into the commercial production industry. His career blends together 10 years of experience in start up technology business, technical writing, B2B sales, United States Peace Corps, Mac OSX support & solutions, international business development, and commercial production in the advertising industry. He is fluent in English and Romanian.
Gary currently works as Studio/Project Manager for Rob Grimm, a world renowned commercial food and beverage photographer with studios in Chicago and St. Louis. He is a problem solver with a practical solution to everything. Gary also produces photo shoots for RGG and Phlearn, the best online resource for learning Photoshop. In his spare time Gary is a staff writer for the photography blogs Fstoppers.com and SLRLounge.com.
