Since his Boy Scout days, Gary has been passionate about the great outdoors, and so in his free time, he tries to get up into the spectacular Japan Alps as often as possible. During the past 2 decades, he has scaled all of the highest 25 peaks in Japan.

Although Gary has published a number of technical and academic papers through the years, only recently has he ventured into book publishing. He has found living in Japan to be a truly fascinating and rewarding cultural experience, and claims to have at least 3 or 4 more books on his mind.
