In December 2012 Gary was admitted into hospital for major surgery on his chest after doctors found his sternum was crushing a heart valve. The surgery consisted having ten ribs broken and the sternum cut into three pieces and then put together again like a jigsaw. This put him out of action for over a year. Despite this and despite Gary having metal bars holding his entire ribcage together he and Sadie married in June 2013 before moving to Folkestone that September to start a new life down south.
Over the years Gary has had experience in many different fields of video production, TV programmes, feature films, short films, music videos and wedding videos with television being his main passion.
In 2013-2015 Gary co-produced and edited the ‘Christmas Slay’ horror movie (written and directed by Steve Davis) and at present he is working on two productions, ‘The History Guys’ a fun factual TV series; and ‘No Glory’, a feature film based on true events that occurred around D-Day in 1944.
