About Gary

I spent 33 years in the advertising business, primarily as a network television Sales Executive. But started as an Ad Agency time buyer. I began writing, during the latter part of that career; creating short stories about the streets of New York. Those efforts graduated into a screenplay called Pay the Piper. it is a gritty, character-driven crime thriller inspired by true events.

I was just beginning to develop the screenplay, when I had a Stroke in 2010; which forced me to retire from the ad game. Since that time, some say that I have made a miraculous recovery, and thus I have dedicated my life to writing. And based on the feedback that I have received from industry professionals thus far, it seems like Pay the Piper may be ready to go. Unfortunately, writing a screenplay is chasing a dream, that nobody sees but you. Consequently, I am seeking an agent to help me get Pay the Piper on the map.
