Hello from the other side...I must've called a thousand times

Greg while troubleshooting, also Adele

Greg was headed down a very different career path from early on. Going to work with his dad at the popular pop music radio station in Cleveland in the 80s was the start of an obsession with the business. This lead to DJ shifts, commercial voiceovers and eventually being the program director in his middle and high school years, through college and into his 20s. With industry consolidation getting worse, Greg saw the writing on the wall and jumped into his other passion--technology. In 2011, his friend got him a job at the local Cisco partner working on the help desk and found his niche working with Cisco Collaboration gear. After stops at two different tech companies in Germany, Greg came back to Florida (where he had gotten his Masters Degree 8 years earlier) and found a home with R2 in 2016. You can still hear Greg's voiceover work whenever you call into the R2 Service Desk, or just ask him "hey, say something like you would on the radio". He'll complain that he's not here for your entertainment, but eventually he'll cave and do it.

Greg was born in Cleveland, moved to Boston at age 4, then to southwest Virginia at age 11--his sports teams allegiances are unique. Since high school, Greg has lived in 4 states, 3 countries, and had 2 kids, Noah and Lucas, with 1 wife, Lucie. He graduated from Radford University in 2007, then FSU in 2008, and took the LSATs in 2009 (true story) which quickly ruled out any ideas of law school or being a lawyer. Greg spent countless hours playing Rock Band and Guitar Hero in the mid-2000's, and got pretty good but his solos still need work. He lived in Los Angeles for a year and gives it 2 out of 5 stars: "Earthquake was a bummer but not a deal breaker. Saw Jose Canseco at the Sherman Oaks Galleria once. Accidentally parked in a poorly marked valet space and got my car towed. Would not recommend."
