About Gary

My family and I are 31 year residents of Alief. My wife Sara and I have been married for 33 years and have 3 wonderful children that are all graduates of Alief Hastings High School.

We have been members of the First United Methodist Church Sugarland for the last 25 years. I have served both as a Sunday school teacher for 14 years and a confirmation leader.

I am a graduate of Texas A&M University, with both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree. I am currently the Director of Operations, BSRB at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. I have been at MDACC for 14 years and prior to that, I was employed by Baylor College of Medicine for 16 years.

I have been an active volunteer in the Alief schools for 25 years. I was a member of the Kennedy Elementary PTO and a member of the Holub Middle School’s Shared Decision Making Council. I also served as the Treasurer of Hastings High School Bears Backers Association for 7 years. I am a current 16 year Board member and past President of the Southwest Houston Recreational Swim Team. I also served as President of the Huntington Village Swim Team for many years. Other former community leadership positions include Alief Youth Association Baseball Coach, Alief YMCA Indian Princess and Guide Leader, and an Arc Dove Volunteer. As a 31 year resident of Huntington Village, I served as both a member and Vice President of the HV Home Owners Association.
