As a boy, Greg spent a lot of time at the movie theater & library. As a teen, he served as editor-in-chief of a literary magazine. Since college, his involvement in the creative arts has taken different forms. His portraits (My Sleepless Nights) have been displayed at events in different nations. His poem, Legacy, became the basis of a poster. He served as Scholar-in-Residence for a civic engagement program for student performing artists in South Africa. He has spoken on topics like creative thinking at schools (i.e. University of North Carolina) and events (i.e. Self-Employment in the Arts Conference). At an event in Canada, he received the Portraits in Humanity Award -- given to someone who used the arts to make a difference. He has been featured by media like Art World News. He has written for the media as well (i.e. article about an artist from Canada). SCROLL DOWN
Greg has co-authored five books & workbooks. The companion workbooks include many creative & artistic activities. Companies (i.e. Viewpoint Creative) & organizations (i.e. Busy Brains Children's Museum) have ordered the books &/or workbooks for internal (i.e. for their staff) or external (i.e. for local students) use. In certain instances, Greg has accepted invitations to perform a one-man-play based on the story featured in the books. The illustrations in The Milkshake Man are based on Greg's sketches & he served as co-illustrator of the illustrations.
