Gunner is NOT your average speaker, What makes him so remarkable is that he was once an enforcer for the Detroit Mafia, which he was born into, his mother being Grace Carmella Tocco. In 2003, he was sentenced to 13-50 years in prison. But while in prison, something miraculous happened. In those dark prison walls, he discovered he had a latent gift for writing and ended up penning 9 novels. He also fell in love with his future wife, Maria, through thousands of pages of love letters. He married her the day he got out, and was baptized in Lake Huron 20 minus later. Definitely the greatest day of his lfe. A year after his release in 2016, he published his debut novels, “TO BE A KING,” Volumes 1 & 2, ironically about a fictional Detroit Mafia family. Within days they skyrocketed to the top of their genre. Today they are being called "the next Godfather."

Gunner's books quickly garnered international attention, and soon the largest true-crime website in the world, National Crime Syndicate, based in Los Angeles, asked him to write "The Lindbloom Chronicles," a series of short stories about his life growing up in a mafia family. They began getting as many as 20,000 reads a day and were syndicated by dozens of true-crime media outlets around the world. To date, they have over 3-million reads and are still read tens of thousands of times each month. Fans of the series are demanding it be made into a scripted TV series for the likes of HBO or Netflix.

Gunner has been featured on everything from Fox News to the Huffington Post, as well as dozens of radio shows, podcasts, and live appearances. Which lead to the creation of his clothing line. While promoting his books, he wore a hoody that had the cover of his book on the front, the words "Detroit OUR THING" on the back. Suddenly, he was inundated with messages from fans wanting the same hoody but with their city on the back, instead of Detroit. This inspired the creating of "OUR THING" Apparel, which now sells all over the world, everything from high end leather jackets and track suits, to T-shirts, hats and athletic gear for men, woman, and even children.

Gunner's antics on social media have garnered him an organic following of nearly one million. His pubic Facebook shenanigans while fishing, camping, hunting, traveling have in many ways made him more famous than his writing. A follow-doc reality show titled "Off The Cuffs" will chronicle his daily adventures as he checks things off his prison bucket list. After spending so many years in prison, he has a childlike zeal for life that cannot be rehearsed or scripted. As a sort of time traveler who never lived a normal life until now, everything is an exciting new adventure for him. "Off The Cuffs" will be part Goodfellas, part Duck Dynasty, and part No Reservations.

Gunner will also be producing and hosting a reality TV show called "Auto Correct," where he mentors troubled teenage youths who are fresh out of jail. Gunner will be hosting a boot-camp style crash rehabilitation course with the kids, mentoring them while they clean, fix, and flip cars for fast profits, to teach them how to be productive adults while making legitimate money. His intention is to teach them the life skills needed to keep them from going back to drugs, crime, and jail. They will respect Gunner because he's not just another guidance counselor or social worker. He's one of them. He's walked in their shoes. He knows their struggles. But he has proven that change is possible.

Gunner was recently contracted to be a celebrity co-host for "Mob Movie Con," a huge event this April in Atlantic City, celebrating history's greatest mob/gangster movies. He has been tasked with assembling a cadre of the 5 best mafia writers on the planet, himself included, to host interactive panel discussions with fans. Him and hs “dream team” of writers will be showcased on the VIP level of the Harrah Casino Resort, where A-list actors like Al Pacino will be part of the pane discussions. Gunner will be in charge of moderating the discussions. The promotors are expecting of up to 80,000 attendees and 150 media outlets

Gunner is also the founder or InfiNET, a new social networking platform. NDA required
