Professional Foresight Credentials


  • Garry, his brilliant wife Ann and young son Noah live in an old, tilted wood framed row house in the South Slope area of Brooklyn, NY.  Things they do not own: car, microwave, dishwasher and TV.  They have two newspapers (WSJ/NYT) delivered each morning.
  • For the past decade he has collected new contemporary art supporting artists from street art, pop surrealism, and social realism.  His slightly delusion 50 year vision – inspired by the Vogel Collection – is to curate one of the world’s great private collections of the 21st century –  look out hedge fund managers! In the meantime he supports emerging artists and tricks his son into loving Picasso
  • In addition to art, he also fills the house with rocks, magnets, micro machine gadgets, puzzles and pieces of coal and shale. He should not be left alone in a museum gift shop.
  • Garry has rediscovered the joy of Legos and puzzles; learned to appreciate Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.
  • At age 13 Garry was on the game show Double Dare (Yes, our team won; but all video evidence is kept in a locked box!)
  • Garry grew up just outside of west Philadelphia in a working class community (not the Main Line!)- and has lived in Madison,WI; Kathmandu, Nepal; Dharamsala, India; Cambridge, MA; Austin and Houston, Texas.
