More than a decade of voice work give Gary an edge in understanding your needs and crafting a delivery that meets them. He is passionate about voice work, but, is it work when he’s having so much fun? Gary enjoys finding exactly the right nuance for the script, a touch of sassiness perhaps or maybe a strong, firm hand. His experience as a copy writer and producer give him a unique perspective as a voice over artist that can help deliver solutions to your communication needs. Gary has also spent over 15 years in the software industry, conducting hundreds of public speaking sessions, which taught him the importance of clear technical details and how strong, clear communication is relevant to every business and industry. He can speak confidently and authoritatively on very technical topics or be a very casual and believable friendly neighbor.
Gary was pleased to donate his time for the narration of a short film on the Unicef Water Tap project, which highlighted the importance of all of us to be more water aware.
He has volunteered his time over the years to do event announcing for Track and Field, where his clarity and pronunciation skills were further developed and appreciated. He completed his third year providing voice services for a growing dragon boat festival in 2013.
In 2016, after three years of service, Gary continues to volunteer his MC skills for Cops for Kids, an organization dedicated to helping the little hearts in our community. He now hosts most of their major events and is working a new series of promotional videos.
