Maryland & Washington D.C.
Over the years, Greg has spent a lot of time - & collaborated with a number of groups - in Maryland & Washington D.C. While in college, he did an internship on Capitol Hill. Since then, on a personal level, he has enjoyed experiences like a visit to the Frederick Douglass - Isaac Myers Maritime Museum, celebrating his birthday with 40 people in D.C., attending a Baltimore Orioles game & walking President Clinton's dog around the West Wing. On a civic level, Greg's mentoring program hosted 243 consecutive weekly outings. The 243rd & final outing in the streak took place in D.C. When he received the Jefferson Award for Public Service, it involved a trip to D.C. that included a special experience in the U.S. Supreme Court. On the professional level, the books based on Greg's story (The Silhouette Man & The First Thirty) have been utilized by organizations & schools around Maryland & Washington D.C. (i.e. Attman's Deli, Moorenko's Ice Cream, Maryland Farm Bureau) with their staff, clients or students &/or as part of their outreach efforts to make a difference. Groups in Maryland (i.e. Visit Montgomery) have sponsored a local edition of The Elevator Project (a kindness recognition project based on the books).
