He has a Master of Social Work and is a licensed social worker who has worked with children and families in New Jersey since 2005 and now works with the elderly population.
With a true passion in life for the arts, Gary's primary focus is painting. He also enjoys photography, writing, and mural designs for homes, schools, and nonprofit organizations. Gary uses acrylic paints to develop his vibrant and inventive paintings. Like himself, his work is eclectic and inspired from various aspects of his life. As a first generation American, Gary relies on his family's traditions and culture to develop some of the energy in his paintings.
