About Us

Hi, my name is Gary.  I love helping people solve problems.  In the 2000's, I began helping small business owners in my hometown reach their marketing goals through radio advertising.  I wrote engaging scripts that would inform and motivate our listeners to become customers of my advertising clients.  I learned how to listen for the problems that my clients were having and developed solutions to fix those problems.  This was when I launched my first website development business.

I sold that business and moved away from home to start a new business as a financial advisor.  I learned more about the problems of business owners as I grew my business and hired additional advisors.  I learned to seek the help of others to help me find solutions to my business problems.

I have always been connected to church.  Back home I was a part-time Youth Pastor.  When I moved away, I became a volunteer in the children's ministry and finance team.  In 2017, I changed careers again and now work at an amazing church in northeast Ohio.  That brings us to the present.  I still love helping people solve their problems, so I launched Engaging Platforms.  I am looking for just a handful of businesses who have problems that I can help them find solution for.  If you feel like you could use some help finding success, I would love to talk with you to see if I could help.  Schedule a call below.  I look forward to speaking with you.
