Member Profile: Gary Stone

by Clare Rabe-DeBoever

MCA-I International Membership Director

 
To many of us Gary Stone is known as the Party SIG Evangelist or the caretaker of Whirrly the Sacred Blender. But his clients know Gary as a Director of Photography who can go high and go deep. More on that later.

Gary tells me that in the Orange County/Los Angeles Chapter he’s long been the "poster child" for networking beyond the local community. “I'd estimate I average around $5K-10K annually due to contacts that I've made through the association.” 

I thought it was time we found out a little more about this MCA-I Lifetime Member and the secret to his success.

A TRAGIC LOSS

We just heard that Mike Obermeier, a long time associate of MCAI and a icon at Santa Ana College for almost 20 years, died in a tragic accident during the Memorial Day weekend.

“Obie,” as he was known to many, started as an eager student became a teacher, senior engineer and studio manager for Santa Ana College ‘s media & telecommunications facility. He was also an important contributor to Santa Ana’s community access channel for many years. Most recently, Mike was a dominant force in the planning, design and implementation of the new Digital Media Center being built in Costa Mesa as a joint venture with Santa Ana College. Despite being in a wheelchair from a motorcycle accident at the age of 21, Obie lived life to the fullest. He will be greatly missed by his college associates, the community and large number of media professionals.
