Born in Wales and raised in the United Kingdom, Gareth later immigrated to the United States after meeting his wife. He has been serving in the US Army for ten years and has secured numerous qualifications under his belt, to include Advanced Mountain Warfare Training.

He is incredibly passionate about the Highland Games and loves hiking, fishing, hunting, and exploring nature with his three children and wife. Gareth describes himself as a go-getter with a hunger for knowledge. He believes the only person stopping them from achieving something is themselves. Moreover, he loves motivating others to live a happier, healthier life.
Presently, Gareth is working as a recruiter in the US Army and acting as President of the 175th Infantry Regiment Association, a volunteer position. In the past, he has organized many fund-raising events to support military morale activities.
