Husband of one, father of two. Greg is a native of Buffalo, NY, and currently lives with his wife and two kids in beautiful Durham, NC.
In Greg’s free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, coaching tee-ball, exercising, playing softball, serving on local non-profit committees, and watching far too many sports. Greg is an avid sports fan, and can be found passionately rooting for the Buffalo Bills, Sabres, and the Boston Red Sox.
Two things Greg never thought he would do but is surprisingly good at, are drawing large-scale chalk pictures on his driveway, and making breakfast into complex shapes and figures, like a hatching egg or an excavator.
