Gary is from UFO magazine and will be providing all the latest info on UFOs.
“My lecture will be about UFO Awareness and the Media. Given the title above I will examine UFO Awareness as reported by the mainstream media and from within the UFO community.”
I was born in 1960 in Scunthorpe in Lincolnshire.
I served in the RAF Police 1983-1989 before spending an almost 24 year career in the British Transport Police (1989-2013).
I was a Home Office trained Detective Constable for 18 years working on all manner of enquiries including murder, manslaughter and rape. I was an advanced police interviewer of witnesses and suspects. I was involved in the London Bombings enquiry as a specialist interviewer of first responding police officers.
In January 2002 whilst still a serving police officer I launched an unofficial national database for police officers reporting UFO sightings in the UK. (www.prufospolicedatabase.co.uk)
Following the sudden death of UFO Magazine editor Graham Birdsall I launched my own online ezine called UFO Monthly.com which ran for 41 issues between 2004-2007.
I then spent 12 months as the co-editor of UFO Data Magazine (2008) (subscription based printed magazine).
In 2010 I was presented with the PRG Disclosure Award in Washington DC by Steve Bassett.
In 2012 I was given the Exopolitics Great Britain award.
Having examined the best evidence I conclude on a circumstantial evidence basis that some UFO sightings i.e. 3% point to an extraterrestrial presence in our airspace.
In March 2013 I retired from the police to launch UFO Truth Magazine, a 96 page bi monthly ezine featuring many of the world’s leading researchers (www.ufotruthmagazine.co.uk) i.e. Richard Dolan (US), AJ Gevaerd (Brazil), Steve Bassett (US), Robert Hastings (US), Grant Cameron (Can), Bill Chalker (A), Mary Rodwell (A), Peter Robbins (US), Bernard Thouanel (France), Suzanne Hansen (NZ), Tim Good (UK) and Robert Salas (US) to name a few.
The first issue was released at the end of June 2013.
On a personal note I am married to Lynn and have two adult daughters from previous relationships called Jamie and Kayley.
