Born to a family of artist in 1942, Gil’s imagination was fine-tuned at such an early age.  Creative positions were awarded him throughout his life; positions such as Reporter for the Military News Paper Stars and Stripes, National Advertising Production Manager for Catalina Swimwear and Sportswear, 25 year career as a Restaurant Designer, Official Portrait Artist for the 2003/04 Western Conference Basketball Champions Sacramento Kings, and his artworks chosen to hang at the 2000 California State Fair.
