Gareth was born in London in another century, grew up in the English county of Essex, and then various parts of Southern England. Then he moved to another Essex, the one in New Jersey, where he lived for some years before moving to California in 2014. He now lives in the town of Davis. These days he's a writer, actor, playwright, comedian, and deviser of murder mystery parties - but in the past he's has tried many different careers, from bank manager to shopkeeper to fortune teller. He is married and his two children are now in their 20's. He loves to cook and is allergic to oak trees. Somehow he never learned to drive a car.
