Call out the welcome wagon, Gary has arrived. The 25-year-old – originally from Detroit, and most recently Atlanta – moved to metro D.C. in August — Woodbridge, Va., specifically. ”I’ve always liked visiting D.C. There was always positive energy. And I was ready for a change. I think I grew out of Atlanta.” Settling in, Gary spends his days with admin work in academia, hitting the gym and modeling.
