I have over 27 years of professional design experience and over 21 years of website design and development experience.
I started my career in 1990 after graduating with honors from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with an Associates Degree in Visual Communications. After graduating I went on to work at one of Pittsburgh’s largest corporate meeting production facilities, The SLIDEing Board. In 1993 I started working with another company in Pittsburgh called Type N’ Slides. My responsibility at Type N’ Slides was to design multimedia presentations for corporate companies like; Westinghouse, Pepsi, Heinz and others. I also traveled with these companieson location offering my experience as a technical consultant and multimedia designer. I left Type N’ Slides in 1999 and started what is known today as Gary Petrie Visual Imaging.
Since then I have created countless websites for companies all across the US. I created my first website for Zambelli Fireworks Internationale in 1996. Building solid relationships with clients is very important for my future growth and I work very hard in developing relationships that last. I’ve designed websites for companies that include Walt Disney World, Scarborough Research and companies just like yours. My resume includes website designs for numerous companies from New York to Los Angeles. I’ve designed websites that include services or products for jewelry, homes, food, health care, retail, sports, construction, research, books, magic, cars and more.
I’m a single (widower) father of three beautiful kids. They are the beat in my heart. I enjoy spending individual time with each. And of course together. They all look like there beautiful mother. It’s been about 5 years since her passing and we’ve been through a lot together. But through all the adversity we stuck together. I always tell people I have BAD KIDS. Their names are Brooke, Alex and Daniel. Good kids with the love of God in their hearts.
I enjoy working on my online business called BabyNameGuide.com. It has become one of the most popular Baby Naming websites on the Internet with over 7,000,000 page views a month. My articles/interviews for Baby Name Guide have appeared on MSNBC.com, MTV.com, National Newspapers, Radio and countless websites.

I share and participate as a partner in many other investments and silent interests that make me an entrepreneur and a self-made… (coming soon).
I am a Christian and believe that God makes all things possible in my life. I like traveling, music, board games, shopping, cooking and most importantly, spending time with my family. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com.
