Gary hails from the Bulkley Valley around the Telkwa/Smithers/Houston/Burns Lake region in North-central British Columbia. Gary is also from the Wit'suwit'en First Nation. Many names in the Bulkley Valley reflect the Wit'suwit'en Culture including names like Telkwa and Suskwa. Gary holds a degree from University of Northern BC in Prince George, Professional Development Program Certificate (PDP), and Master's in Education (MEd) from Simon Fraser University. Before returning to school, he worked as the Wit'suwit'en fisheries manager and grew-up watching the Delgamuukw court case wind it's way through court. Gary believes that he grew-up in one of the nicest places in the world and often tells people in the Lower Mainland that, "if you haven't seen Northern BC, you haven't seen BC."
