In life and in poker, we can do everything to put the odds in our favor, but we can’t completely control the outcome. That’s how Gary feels about philanthropy. As a Certified Advisor in Philanthropy, he has the knowledge and tools to help donors articulate and advance their highest aspirations for self, family, and society. After 18 years at the Foundation, he still considers it the highest honor to learn about donors’ passions and visions, and work alongside them to make those aspirations a reality.
Gary enjoys spending time with his wife and his new grandchild, and watching Rice University football, where his youngest son, Cole, plays offensive guard. He’s also an avid student of the game of Texas Hold ‘Em and enjoys sharing his knowledge of the game.
