The year 2016 kept Gary busy performing onstage in Cinderella and The Fantasticks for SACRAMENTO THEATRE COMPANY, State Fair for SIERRA REPERTORY THEATRE in Sonora, CA, and then on the East Coast in Parfumerie for AMERICANA THEATRE COMPANY. In early 2017, Gary will return to SACRAMENTO THEATRE COMPANY to perform the role of Gonzalo in their production of The Tempest.
 
In 2015, Gary returns to SACRAMENTO THEATRE COMPANY to perform the role of The Major General in The Pirates of Penzance directed by Michael Laun. Later this year, he will enact the role of Walter Keegan in The Country House directed by Robert Kelley for TheatreWorks to be performed at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts. The feature film The Wisdom Tree (filmed over 3 years ago) is currently enjoying national distribution and can be seen at a local screen near you in the near future!
 
2014 found Gary back in Sacramento to portray the lead role of Mr. Green in Visiting Mr. Green for SACRAMENTO THEATRE COMPANY. Later he made his debut at JEWEL THEATRE COMPANY in Santa Cruz in the dual roles of The Archbishop and The Inquisitor in Shaw's Saint Joan before returning to SACRAMENTO THEATRE COMPANY to reprise the role of Potter in It's A Wonderful Life--the Musical.
 
In 2013, Gary took a month off to travel to Mexico to explore potential theatrical opportunities for the future. Since his return, he has been involved in two staged readings--one for Playwright's Foundation in San Francisco and the other for The Eugene O'Neill Foundation performed on the estate in Danville. As well, Gary has begun his professional modelling career as a print model for the Bank of America (US Trust Bank). He returned to PACIFIC REPERTORY THEATRE in Carmel to perform the roles of Argan in The Imaginary Invalid directed by Kenneth Kelleher and Bottom in A Midsummer's Night Dream directed by Stephen Moorer. Gary completed the year performing the role of Potter in It's A Wonderful Life--the Musical for SACRAMENTO THEATRE COMPANY.
 
In 2012, Gary made his acting debut with B Street Theatre in Sacramento in the title role of The Giver in the play of the same name. After a short break, Gary returned to his favorite Bay Area performing arts company, TheatreWorks, in the role of Candy in their production of Of Mice and Men directed by long-time friend and colleague Robert Kelley.
 
2011 provided Gary with the opportunity of making his debut with Pacific Repertory Theatre in Carmel in the role of Capulet in Romeo and Juliet in the glorious Forest Theatre and returning to Sacramento later in the year to appear in his fifth production of Every Christmas Story Ever Told for Capital Stage Company in their newly-built mid-town performance space.
 
2010 turned out to be another great year. Gary has been signed with LOOK Talent in San Francisco and auditioned for voiceover work on three national commercials, two industrial shoots, and completed on-camera work for his first internet commercial for Renewable Funding LLC. He booked a national on-air commercial as Spokesperson for MyFicoScore.com. In June, Gary returned to San Francisco Shakespeare Festival for his sixth consecutive season as DUKE/HOST in their 60's-themed production of Two Gentleman of Verona. Immediately following that, Gary performed the role of Bradley in The Cocktail Hour for Hapgood Theatre Company followed by a return to Capital Stage Company for his fourth production of Every Christmas Story Ever Told.
 
Gary had a very exciting year in 2009. Theatrically, he appeared in three productions--as Gary (who else?) in The Complete History of America--Abriged for Capital Stage Company in Sacramento, as Egeon/Luce in The Comedy of Errors for San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, and finally as USS Grant/Longfellow/Walt Whitman/other in the West Coast premiere of A Civil War Christmas by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel for TheatreWorks. Media work included more time "behind the glass" on projects for Sega and Marvelous Entertainment.
 
In 2008, Gary had a successful run of Equity work onstage in 2008 with appearances as MUSHNIK in Little Shop of Horrors for Broadway by the Bay, CLEON, FISHERMAN, PANDER, others in Pericles for San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, and GARY (who else?) in Every Christmas Story Ever Told for Capital Stage Company. In addition to stage work, Gary appeared in three films -- The Thanatos Complex (indie), die Mekaniks (indie), and Milk (with Sean Penn for Focus Features).
