Outside of the office!
It is no secret that the Sanson family is known for their world travels, but you might be surprised to know Gary has actually been to 60+ countries and ALL FIFTY US States! If you’re looking for a trip advisor, look no further. The internet has got nothin’ on him! When Gary isn’t working or traveling, you may find him clothed in maize and blue cheering for his beloved Michigan, hiking, kayaking, or woodworking. Gary is not one to sit still, and given the choice between staying in or going out, you can bet Gary is going out. He’s got a warm and genuine smile that people gravitate towards; and his favorite movie is “The Breakfast Club” if that gives you any insight into his sensitivity level.
