SPOKEN WORD: Poetry, SPOKEN WORD: Comedy
As a child in Oklahoma he was entertained by stories, poems and legends told to him by his Grandmother. This began Gary’s life long love of story telling. For 25 years, Gary has been writing about the daily trials and tribulations, of the cowboy and rancher. Gary started performing and publishing his poetry in 1994. Recently, one of his poems was chosen to be included in the book Cowboy Poetry: the Reunion. His poetry has appeared in the Chickasaw Times, Capriolas Catalogue, American Cowboy Magazine, and several local newspapers. He has been a featured performer at Colorado Cowboy Poetry Gathering, Arizona Cowboy Poetry Gathering, Cowboy Hall of Fame, Gene Autry Museum, The Conejo Cowboy Poetry Festival, and Big Bear Cowboy Poetry Gathering. While living in Oklahoma, Gary worked the IOA Ranch over seeing the cattle, hay, and grain operations. He taught Blacksmithing and Farrier Science at the Oklahoma Horseshoeing School. Currently, Gary works as Ranch Manager, for Greenfield Ranch, in Thousand Oaks California.
