Mapping Your Success

Author, speaker, strategic consultant, master storyteller and celebrated Hollywood film producer, Gary has produced some of Hollywoods biggest box-office hits, including among others Pretty Woman, The Mothman Prophecies and Under Siege and its sequel.   

His films have generated well over a billion dollars in worldwide revenue, receiving multiple Academy Award nominations, Peoples Choice Awards, a Golden Globe and various other awards.


Having spent his early years living a stones throw from the homes and hangouts of Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and others, music was an early passion.

As one of the first-ever A&R reps for Columbia Records while still an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, Gary was the youngest music exec in the San Francisco arm of one of the biggest music labels at the time.  Responsible for hosting the touring stars of the Columbia family of recording artists, Gary worked with Bay Area music stores, venues and the 30,000-strong campus of UC to promote Columbias artists.  

Doing double duty, Gary was also Music Chairman for the UC Berkeley campus, responsible for producing all concerts and cabarets at then brand new 2,500-seat Zellerbach Auditorium.  Gary promoted dozens of concerts, including Chuck Berrys revival concert with the Steve Miller Band as his backup, Joni Mitchell (surprising her with then-boyfriend Graham Nash coming out on stage to duet with her), Jon Sebastian, Hoyt Axton, Phil Ochs, and dozens more.  

The impact and possibility of music during the political heydey of upheaval the Vietnam War, Altamont (aka Woodstock West), Peoples Park etc and the statements being made by the Rolling Stones, Santana, Crosby Stills Nash & Young and so many other great artists left an indelible impression and love for the power of entertainment and story, be it through music, film and beyond.

Later attracted by the siren call of the film business, Gary abandoned the practice of law in San Francisco, opting to move to Los Angeles and break into the film business. Garys early experience in the music trade was amazing preparation for producing, marketing and promotion, budgeting events, and working with top tier talent of the day.

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
