Gary Hu

Four years ago, after Gary received his BA in Advertising in China, he came to Thunder Bay, ON and spent a year in the college in Business program. His working experience in managing a A&W restaurant right after graduation gave him a grasp of people management and customer relationships. Even though Gary had a crush on food and customers, he wanted to take a U-turn in his life, to go back where he started. So Gary decided to take MDM program where he can integrate all his hard and soft skill sets. Gary is a talented cook in Asian food, an above-the-average graphic designer, a terrible-but-not-horrible web designer, a just-for-fun guitarist.
