Gary has been an artist since he could hold a crayon, and a public-school teacher for 13 years. 

As an artist, he started out drawing airplanes and superheroes in the margins of math papers and placemats, graduating to studio art, and later, digital graphic design and photography in high school and college. 

As a teacher, he’s shared his knowledge and enthusiasm for art with students in grades ranging from K-12. Blending his specialty in art and his teaching, he’s had the opportunity to develop the graphic design and photography program at his high school over the past six years.
