As Vice President of Policy & Public Affairs at HealthRIGHT 360, Gary oversees government and external affairs, press and media relations, and advocacy efforts on behalf of HealthRIGHT 360, its workers, and clients. Gary experienced homelessness as a young adult, having lived on the streets of San Francisco throughout his twenties with substance use disorder. Since getting back on his feet over a decade ago, Gary has been heavily involved in advocating for policies and spearheading public health responses that directly relate to people experiencing homelessness, people in recovery from substance use disorder, people involved in the criminal justice system, and life-saving harm-reduction approaches for people who use drugs.

Prior to joining HealthRIGHT 360, Gary worked for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a Senior Congressional Aide, with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department, and as a Legislative Aide to three Members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Previous community commitments have been on the boards of the California Homeless Coordinating & Financing Council, the San Francisco Shelter Monitoring Committee, and the Castro Country Club, a sober gathering space for queers and allies in recovery from substance use disorder.
