Emmy-winning colorist Gary began his career in 1989 in the then-burgeoning genre of music videos, quickly becoming the go-to colorist for directors like Paris Barclay, Lionel Martin, Matt Mahurin, Brett Ratner and Marc Klasfeld. He soon branched out into commercials and promos and helped create iconic looks for networks such as MTV.
His extensive background in sports programming includes documentaries and promos for the Olympics, HBO, NBC Sports, NBC Universal, WWE, History, A&E, ESPN and Syfy. He has also worked on numerous series and features including “Strangers With Candy,” “Pete & Pete,” “Nature,” “HBO Undercover,” “Tupac: Resurrection,” “Lemmy” and countless others.
A class act whose personal tastes tend toward the classics, Gary is a diehard Mets fan who listens to The Who, Miles Davis, Allman Brothers Band, Coltrane, Sinatra, Ella and Grant Green (“Most anything without drum machines or synths”). His favorite movie quote is from 1947’s landmark film noir “Out of the Past”: “Build my gallows high, baby” (which is something you could imagine Gary saying). The best advice he ever received? “Don’t look back, they may be gaining on you.” And the three things he could never live without? “My wife, my kids, The Mets.” Diehard, baby.
