Since college, Greg's interest in the Literary, Visual, Performing & Creative Arts has taken different forms. He has co-authored two books (and has accepted invitations to perform a one-man-play based on the story featured in the books). He has written columns and articles for a number of newspapers and 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.

On the civic side, he has participated in the READ campaign for multiple libraries. His Foundation has funded grants to provide art supplies, books, film equipment and musical instruments to schools around North America - as well as - grants and college scholarships for students with a demonstrated interest in art, writing and music. At an event in Canada, Greg 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 and filmmaker Steven Spielberg. His efforts also have been featured by media like Art World News and Good Morning America. Greg's interest in the Creative Arts trace back to his childhood. As a boy, he spent much of his free time at the movie theater (where his godfather was the projectionist) and the public library. In high school, he served as Editor-in-Chief of the school literary magazine.
