started out in this business fifteen years ago working as an assistant
editor, shortly thereafter finding his space as an editor at a small
boutique production/post-production house in Rhinebeck, NY while
attending Bard College. Very quickly into his hands-on training Gary
realized that the technology side of the post-production business was
meant for him. Since then Gary has worked as an Editor, Sales Engineer,
DVD Author and Compressionist, Demo Artist, Animator, Post-Production
Supervisor and Integration Specialist.
Gary’s palette of broadcast, editorial and industry experience include: The Criterion Collection, Have Inc., Sony Music Studios, WCW, Disney’s World Of English, Accom, Apple, Avid, Discreet, Fast Multimedia, Media 100, Pinnacle Systems, and Spruce Technologies to name a few. Gary has earned the following awards and recognitions for his editorial work: a Cine Golden Eagle, three Eclat Awards, a Wilbur Award, and a Gold Houston Worldfest Award. Some of Gary’s most recent and recognized credits include: DVD Compressionist/DVD Author/Post-Production Supervisor on 2008 Grammy Nominated R. Kelly’s “Trapped In The Closet Chapters 13-22”; Multicam Post-Supervisor on 2007 Platinum Record Awarded R. Kelly’s “Live Light It Up Tour DVD”; DVD Compressionist for 2006 R. Kelly’s “Trapped In The Closet Chapters 1-12,” and DVD Author on 2005 Grammy Nominated Martin Scorsese’s “The Blues Film Series.”
Gary now brings this palette to Tekserve, where he’s looking forward to helping not just film & broadcast companies in the Northeast but also corporations move towards an Apple centric solution. Gary takes the time to listen, brainstorm, and view each customer relationship as a partnership in order to come up with a solution that is best for the customer. Gary wants to help people make an educated decision instead of an impulsive one.
