ABOUT ME

A former ninth-grade dropout addicted to drugs and alcohol, at the age of twenty Gary was sentenced to fifteen years in prison for carjacking, kidnapping, and armed robbery.

It was within the confines of a prison cell that he realized his life had a purpose and that he was the only one responsible for fulfilling it.  And so the arduous task began of mining the diamond he discovered within himself.
 

During the years that followed he strategically transformed his life and became a leader and mentor to other prisoners.  Now he speaks to young people and encourages them to believe in their genius. He is the author of Mining The Diamond In You and Black Multi-Genius.

"You have a great message for a lot of people; black, white, red, yellow green, young, old, female, male.  You can help a lot of people with this message."

Rev. Anthony Pelham

"Gary, in his life dealt with what many of these kids who are participating in violence and other risky behavior are going through. Lack of family, lack of support, all kinds of things that many of us don't have a clue about, he does. He has street cred."
