When Greg was a child, it became clear he 'thinks & learns differently'. He learned how to navigate that path, but it was still not always easy for others to see his potential. At 18, he was rejected from every college he hoped to attend. He did not give up and found a school that would give him a chance. After he graduated college, his path came full circle when he became an educator & the head of a foundation helping students pursue their educational dreams. The books based on his story have been used at schools that value students who think & learn differently (e.g. a school for students with autism & learning differences got copies for its staff & students).

The books, workbooks &/or posters have also been used by nonprofits (e.g. chapter of Special Olympics) for their Board, staff, the people they serve &/or local students. Greg has done book signings (e.g. Bluegrass Autism Walk), spoken at schools (i.e. assemblies & graduations) for students who think & learn differently, guest lectured on topics like thinking methodologies at universities, and spoken at local & national events for parents, educators & future educators. He has been featured by media like Education Week. He has written for the media as well (e.g. article about an artist inspired by his son who has autism). During the pandemic, Greg has teamed up with nonprofits (e.g. The Arc of Norfolk) on long-distance activities involving the books.
