Gary Hickman – about

Author & Podcast Host

He’s not all there, but doing alright.

Born into a violent childhood, Gary was always seeking refuge somewhere. This led him to join the military and was assigned to the 101st Airborne. Serving in Desert Storm, he was then recruited by a security contract company. Gary performed clandestine missions overseas for a number of years, but finally settled down. He is now the Director of Operations for an IT company in Northern VA.

He has been a martial arts/self-defense instructor for twelve years.

Gary is also the driving force behind Reap the Light. A music project that exposes metal/hard rock to new generations while supporting important causes. By supporting this project, you’ll be providing help to victims of Domestic Violence, PTSD and depression as well as musicians and artists. Gary writes all lyrics for each song as well as arrangements, producing and mixing.
