After graduating college, Greg became a teacher. Two months into his career, he witnessed a moment of conflict between three customers at a restaurant. Hoping to bridge the racial, cultural & generational divides which appeared to spark it, he founded The Brunch Bunch Mentoring Program. A year & a half later, he expanded his efforts & founded The 11-10-02 Foundation. Now in its 17th year, the organization funds grants & scholarships to support students with financial need. Driven by his bond with his Grandmother, he also has devoted a lot of time to older adults & issues which impact them. For his volunteer & philanthropic efforts, he was named one of America's Daily Points of Light & received the Jefferson Award for Public Service. He was honored at Princeton University as 'one of America's top social entrepreneurs under 40'. He has served as guest speaker/lecturer or Scholar-in-Residence for schools, programs, companies, events & conferences in different countries. In 2013, he was invited to be one of the Aspen Ideas Festival Scholars. His art has gone on exhibit at events in different nations as well. At an event in Canada, he received the Portraits in Humanity Award -- given to someone who has used the Arts to make a difference. Greg is the real person upon whom The Silhouette Man by Jillip Naysinthe Paxson is based. The book was honored for its emphasis on the wisdom of grandparents. The student edition (The First Thirty) was NSDLC Multicultural Relations Book of the Year. His story also has been featured by outlets like Washington Post, National Public Radio & Good Morning America. At times, he has written for the media as well. His poem, Legacy, became the basis for the Legacy Poster.
