Since college, Greg's interest in the Literary, Visual, Performing & Creative Arts has taken different forms. He has co-authored two books (& has accepted invitations to perform a one-man-play based on the story featured in the books). The books feature various forms of Art (i.e. Visual Art) & lessons learned from artistic sources (i.e. a photographer) in a very positive light. The books have been used in creative contexts (i.e. a high school had the students in a Fashion Design course read them & design their Spring Collections based in part on themes in the story). He also has written columns & articles for many newspapers & magazines. His poem, Legacy, became the basis of a poster. His portrait collection (My Sleepless Nights) has gone on exhibit at events in different nations. He served as Scholar-in-Residence for a civic engagement program for student performing artists in South Africa. In 2013, he was named one of the Aspen Ideas Festival Scholars. Over the years, Greg has been invited to speak at a variety of events related to Innovation, Creativity &/or the Arts (i.e. Self-Employment in the Arts Conference and The Art of Engagement Conference). He has participated in the READ campaign for multiple libraries. At an event in Canada, he received the Portraits in Humanity Award -- given to someone who used the Arts to make a difference. The Washington Post wrote a very kind story on the parallels between Greg & filmmaker Steven Spielberg. His creative efforts have been featured by media like Art World News. His interest in these topics trace back to his childhood. As a boy, he spent much of his time at the movie theater (where his godfather was the projectionist) & the library. As a teenager, he served as Editor-in-Chief of a literary magazine.
