Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/12/2016 -- Award-winning writer, producer, and director Gary Lennon lost his parents before the age of thirteen. Portraying broken people who strive to be whole, writing became his first route to drawing emotional experiences into creative endeavors that depict the human condition. Reflecting on his perspective that "many people in the world feel disenfranchised because they don't see themselves in popular culture," he'll talk about the reoccurring principles through which he came into and grew his success. Like the characters and plots he develops, his personal narrative offers a universal illustration of the accessibility of love, family, friendship, and purpose for everyone.
