Writer Biography - Gary McElkerney

With a Degree in Design, I’ve always had a keen interest in all things creative. I founded the Ultimate
Creative Challenge (TUCC) five years ago with the aim to write a novel and get it published, adapt
the novel into a script for TV/Film, and produce the soundtrack. While Volunteer has had its
successes internationally, TUCC has grown in an unexpected way and had the pleasure of working on
numerous short films for local producers, music videos for rising local talent , and working with
established musicians such as Gaz Whelan and the Happy Mondays. It has assisted in Laura Lacole’s
Frontier Model Agency Launch, and watched individuals I have worked with flourish with their own
talents or create their own creative companies, and focused on the promotion of local and
international artists from local talent of Visual Waste, Joni Belaruski, and William Simpson to
Godmachine. With each creative project I have tried to tie as many different creative mediums and
artists to create a piece of art, in the hope of inspiring others to step out of their comfort zones.
