Gary was born in Britain, and grew up in the Southeastern United States. He has spent much of his life climbing and exploring the world, including countless trips to the Nepal Himalaya.

A 1986 climbing accident left Gary with a broken neck and the loss of the majority of his left arm. He was forced to come face to face with his own limitations, and after serious introspection, began climbing again. He has inspired others ever since to continue onward and upward.

In 1997, he attempted Lhotse, the 4th highest mountain in the world, and in 2001, Mt. Everest. He is very active in the community and is known throughout the world for his passion for exploring and promoting the potential of people with disabilities. Gary spends the majority of his time traveling the world speaking professionally to global corporations. Gary’s next expedition will be made public shortly. Thank you for your interest.
