Gary has always lived on the West Coast with his roots in the small fishing community of Kyuquot. Once a commercial fisher, Gary now spends his time scuba diving, sports fishing, rolling his kyak, and building facilities from which to enjoy and share his home with others. During the summer months, Gary has a "job" ferrying kayaks out to the Broken Group Islands. After whale watching and dropping off his new friends he dives or goes fishing before picking the folk up at the end of the day. This, he swears, is "work".
