About Gary

I have always been a student of history. I was raised in a family that was always discussing current political and world events, and relating that to their own rich life experiences - comparing and contrasting in a way that brought it to life for me. Growing up in Louisiana, I was immersed in a historical atmosphere, both from locale and genealogy. All of that led to a varied educational path for me that included a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration (Cum Laude) and two years of Law School. Since then, I have spent 35 years with major corporations that engaged in consulting with other major corporations.

Because of my background and education, I can readily teach and bring to life all aspects of American history, World History and the relationships that economic, legal, social and geopolitical atmosphere influenced the big picture of those times - and the future that we now live in. My strength is being able to instill in a student a sense of relevance to history rather than merely the drudgery of memorizing facts and dates. I hope to bring each of them a deeper understanding of the importance of why what has happened in the past is still directly impacting their lives.
