From Michigan to Tanzania, from the education system to the non-profit sector, Gary continually works to influence others to live with purpose. Being fueled by his fascination of individuals’ uniqueness, everything he does is to inspire others to stop and think so that they can imagine a better future for our world.
In between runs along the Detroit Riverwalk, Gary likes to spend time with his pup, Chip, named after the Central Michigan University Chippewas where he formally studied psychology, communication, leadership, and education.
Gary wears many hats—he has served in a leadership development non-profit, supported teachers as an instructional coach, and developed curriculum for personal development organizations. Now, Gary coaches others to find an authentic way to share their story with the world to create an impact on the lives of others.
Have you caught yourself scrolling through social media comparing yourself to others?
Do you see other people getting promotions, landing their dream jobs, starting their families—and you’re left questioning, “What am I doing with my life?”
Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to make an important life decision, such as the next job you’ll take, what to study, who to marry, or where you should live?
Choose Your Best Life is for people feeling stuck and overwhelmed with making the “right” decisions. This book offers insights, evidence-based information, and case studies as well as an introductory explanation to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
Gary has been fascinated with individual uniqueness for as long as he can remember.
As far back as middle school, Gary remembers researching tools to help articulate the ways that people are different.
In college, he was known for helping other students discover their natural preferences, identify their unique strengths, and articulate why they do what they do through their purpose statements.
He is certified as a CliftonStrengths for Students facilitator, is a certified Myers-Briggs Practitioner, and has worked with hundreds of people to articulate their unique why statements.
Everything that Gary does is to inspire others to stop and think so that they can imagine a better future for our world.
