He has been providing telecommunications course development, education, and consulting services since 1984, both at Hill Associates and as an independent consultant, with a brief hiatus as a Senior Consultant in the Professional Services Group at Bolt Beranek and Newman (BBN) Systems & Technologies (where he telecommuted to the group's Cambridge, Massachusetts office and was program manager of CommerceNet's Public Key Infrastructure Task Force).
Gary has been a software engineer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California; Coordinator of Academic Computing at St. Michael's College in Colchester; and an applications programmer supporting researchers in the Cardiology Department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Gary was instrumental in forwarding the advancement of computer crime legislation in Vermont, the last state in the U.S. to enact such legislation (1999). Gary is also the founding chair of the Vermont InfraGard chapter and is active in efforts to reverse laws requiring digital forensics examiners to be licensed as private investigators.
Gary is the co-author (with Peter V. Southwick) of ISDN: Concepts, Facilities, and Services, 4th. edition (McGraw-Hill, 1998), the co-author (with David A. Train) of Metropolitan Area Networks: Concepts, Standards, and Services (McGraw-Hill, 1992), and has written more than 60 articles and papers.

He was originally certified in SCUBA by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation — source of the first recreational SCUBA certification in the U.S. — in 1967 at the age of 13. After a long hiatus, Gary was re-certified in 1991 as one of the original divers with the Colchester Rescue Dive Team in Colchester, Vermont. Gary dives as much as possible, finally eschewing the wrecks in dark, cold, murky Lake Champlain for the warmer waters of Florida... See some of his favorite SCUBA Web sites and other SCUBA-related information.
Gary is a life member (and former Chief) of the Colchester Rescue Squad and was an Emergency Medical Technician from 1979-2006; he is also the webmaster of the Green Mountain Critical Incident Stress Management Team.
