Gary surfaced several years ago in Connecticut, though was seen extremely rarely topside. Since the 2007 he's been seen at various gatherings in the Midwest, including the last few Midwinter Galas. He moved to Chicago in 2007, taking the position of Primogen under Prince Tasha X. Since then, Gary provided a fair amount of assistance to other Midwestern Domains through Influence and personal aid, like serving as Milwaukee's Nosferatu Primogen pro-tem for several Midwinter gatherings. In 2012, he left Chicago for Milwaukee to serve as their actual Primogen. Post Midwinter 2014, following the disappearance of Prince Mathias Warren, Gary claimed Praxis of Milwaukee. In 2015, a year and a half after taking Praxis, Gary was deposed by Prince Pagan, and remained in Milwaukee as their Harpy. In March 2018, Gary was removed from his position of Harpy, causing a stir in Camarilla circles.
Gary served as a Deputy Sheriff of Baltimore for the Conclave in March 2015, and as a Lesser Harpy of Baltimore for the Glitter & Gloom galas of 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
He's been known to be a strong proponent of Humanity and has earned notable success aiding others in regaining their lost Humanity. A known pacifist, Gary avoids violence and tends to vanish in fights, taking non-combatants with him.

He is known (as officially as possible) to be a friend of Clan Malkavian (OOC: Clan Friendship - Malkavian), thanks to several close and more-or-less close friendships with many Malkavians including Casamir Harlock, Echo, Izarra Getzi, James Abbott, Luni the Wise, Mark Richardson, Phillip Bankrofte, Reika Tsudeko Kuze, Sadie Court, and Samuel.
Gary is known to have quite a few friends in the Camarilla, including a surprising number of Toreador, among them Amanda Desrosiers, Charlie, Dominique, Harrow, Lilyan Townsend, and Rachel Dubhan, - as well as Ainsley Good, Corkie Pelligrino, Daniel Corcoran, Elisabeth Schroeder, Hannah Martin, Jennica Sparrow, Mercy St. Isaac, Oliver Freigh, and many others.
