About Me

Gary J. Duarte:  grew up in Maine playing ice hockey, music and enjoying one of the most beautiful states in America. I lived there about 38 years and moved to Nevada in 1984. I saw the Maine Yankee Nuclear Power plant go online in 1972 and it produced electrical energy through 1997 a 25 year successful history.  

An entrepreneurial background in small business began at the age of about seven talking an employee of a lumber company into building me a rock maple shoe shine box for a percentage of my earnings, he did, I did, I paid, I still have it! I served as Executive Vice President of the Maine Jaycees, organized the first statewide multi-chapter March of Dimes Walk-A-Thon which was offered as a model to the National Jaycees. Owned and operated Duarte Typesetting Company for 17 years, the first computerized book phototypesetting company in the State of Maine. I developed a software application called Stylo-Type I, the first “Macintosh” based mnemonic coding program to link a Macintosh computer to a Linotronic typesetting machine.  

I consider myself a true entrepreneur and small business visionary having established our typesetting company in the basement of our Maine home with 8 employees requiring new technology training where book composition was not part of the local commerce structure. Experience in this business environment exposed us to the U. S. Small Business Administration, banking credit lines, cost accounting, time studies, etc.

I Co-Authored a paper “The SGML Solution to System Independence” by Gary J. Duarte, President, DeskTop ComPosition Systems, Inc. & J. Sperling Martin, Vice President, Aspen Systems Corp. 1990. SGML (standard generalized markup language) was a text based mnemonic markup coding system, a predecessor and included in the W3C standard as part of HTML (hypertext markup language) used in WEB document text processing today.  As an industry specialist I taught the Introduction to Printing & Graphics at Truckee Meadows Community College several years. Also our early years in Reno our typesetting company typeset most of the University of Nevada Sports & Media Guides 1987 through 1995. I also worked several years in the casino entertainment realm on stage work at Harrah’s and as an audio video technician at the Silver Legacy.

In retirement I established a non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation US Nuclear Energy Foundation, (www.usnuclearenergy.org) a grassroots volunteer directive to educate citizens towards expanding clean nuclear energy development and waste repository management, a foundation I plan to continue indefinitely.

My interest is to advocate nuclear development to help foster small business and industrial manufacturing expansion nationwde advancing creative entrepreneurial visionary ideas and programs for American citizens aggressively interested in self employment.
