“What I marvel at most is how a man nearly killed and severely injured in a terrorist attack chose to befriend the brother of the man who'd targeted him.” 

David Kaczynski

Brother of the Unabomber

Hi, I'm Gary Wright

I'm a successful businessman, father, entrepreneur, wanna be athlete, jack of all trades, fix ‘almost anything,’ kind of guy. I'm also the survivor of a terrorist attack.  ​

My life changed in a millisecond when I picked up a pipe bomb in the parking lot of my business and it exploded. It had been placed there by an obscure man, law enforcement code named ‘The Unabomber’ 

I spent years recuperating from my physical injuries and coming to terms with the realization that someone had tried to kill me. I have a unique perspective on what it takes to recover from an act of terrorism and how grit, resilience, and adaptability profoundly affect life, personal relationships, and business.

I share the knowledge I have gained with individuals and organizations to help them understand the impact of trauma, its unseen side effects, and how to successfully define new and efficient paths forward. Previous topics include the unseen effects of trauma, effective communication, change management, and the benefits of exercise on healing.

Let's talk and see if we're a fit.

I have appeared on dozens of radio and television programs and been a featured guest speaker at many conferences, companies, and institutions.
