Gary Hinson was born in southeast Texas and lived there most of his life, although he's always been prone to wanderlust. He served in the US Navy for four years and took advantage of the GI Bill to earn an undergraduate degree from Lamar University.
Hinson's professional life began as a laborer. He rose through the ranks to become a business owner and industrial construction consultant.
Sixty-five years of life have left Hinson with a wealth of experience and knowledge. He's had more than a few near misses with death—including a flatline—and experienced too many losses to count. These incidents and others forged his strong integrity and principles.
