THE GUYS WITH THE VISION
Gary Michael Barnidge is an American football tight end who is currently a free agent. He was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He played college football at Louisville. From 2013 to 2017, he also played for the Cleveland Browns.
In 2011, Barnidge, along with friend and Louisville Cardinal teammate Breno Giacomini, then of the Seattle Seahawks, started a not-for-profit organization called American Football without Barriers. The organization hosted its first camp in China in March 2013.
Barnidge has appeared on two episodes of Total Divas, an E! Network TV show about WWE Divas going on dates with Rosa Mendes and Summer Rae. He also appeared on an episode of Impact Wrestling in 2017, assisting fellow NFL player DeAngelo Williams.
My passion for people has motivated and driven me to exceed my personal expectations in every facet of my life. Prior to serving in the United States Navy for 8 years, I earned over 10 years of sales & retail management experience to leverage into the concept and creation of TeleFrame. As a huge fan of the old spy flicks and movies like 'Back to the Future', it surprised me to find out that there was no sofisticated, seamless process for face-to-face video chat through a smart TV. On top of that, my wall-mounted TV stuck out like a sore thumb. I created TeleFrame to fix those issues and bring communication to the next level.
Throughout my professional journey, I’ve worked in standup comedy, owned my own custom motorcycle shop, and had the privilege of working with exceptional people from “Bobcat” Goldthwait to Joe Montana.
