Growing up on a dairy farm in rural southeastern Indiana. Gary was raised in a conservative Christian environment and looked forward to a life much like his ancestors had lived. The two car garage, white picket fence and 2.5 kids was his life’s dream. Due to some twists of fate his life changed suddenly and a different path was taken.
At this time, he began to question everything he was brought up to believe, his political views, his religious and spiritual beliefs and every value society places on us as members of the human race. During hisVision Quest,which led him to Egypt, Australia, the Canary Islands, Belize and most of the United States, he reevaluated and examined everything he believed in.
Having always had an interest in things of a spiritual and esoteric nature this was without question a predetermined path. Through and because of his interest in photography he was able to study and document many ancient cultures throughout the world, in particular, the Australian Aborigine, the Maya, and the Ancient Egyptians.
Although his travels have changed his perception of life and many of the spiritual values he once held, one belief remains unchanged.
His belief in the basic conservative core values of life that have been carried down through the ages from time immemorial.His belief in a Supreme Being or God has not faltered. In spite of this, he has found there is much more to life than conventional wisdom leads us to believe.
Time and time again history has shown that when a people or civilization fall from a belief in their God and basic common sense values, their way of life ceases to be. Let’s not let that happen to us.

Quote of the Day
"Your craft is a muscle. You must develop it through the exercise of daily writing."
-Rachel Grove, Blurb Founder
A Russian couple was walking down the street in Moscow one night
when the man felt a drop hit his nose. "I think it's raining" he
said to his wife.
"No, that felt more like snow to me" she replied.
"No, I'm sure it was just rain" he said.
Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument
about whether it was raining or snowing. Just then, they saw a
minor communist party official walking toward them. "Let's not
fight about it", the man said, "Let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether
it's officially raining or snowing."
As the official approached, the man said, "Tell us, Comrade Rudolph,
is it officially raining or snowing?"
"It's raining, of course!" he replied, and walked on.
But the woman insisted: "I know that felt like snow!"
The man quietly replied: "Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"
Restoring Faith in America
Retiring in 1994 from United Parcel Service where he became a member of the distinguished UPS Circle of Honor, whose nine thousand plus members have all attained over twenty-five years of safe accident-freedriving.
Gary has done everything but retire. After moving from his native state of Indiana to Sedona Arizona, and finally to Sarasota Florida, he started writing and studying native cultures, traveling to Egypt, Belize and Australia, and how the changes in our own American culture corresponded to the changes and collapse their native cultures.
The author of seven books, all published on Amazon.
He has seen the decline of a once great nation, to one that has become lost and struggling for a new identity. Just like some of the great cultures of the past, America has become a victim ofits own success, achieving much in the field of science and technology, but losing the spiritual foundation that once made it great.
We also run the risk of losing our culture and our way of life if we don’t once again return to the doctrines that made this great nation great.
Gary is available for speaking and book signing events.
