Greg began his degree program as a biology/chemistry double-major at the Denver campus of the University of Colorado. During his sophomore year, he discovered a latent aptitude for math, resulting, subsequently, in his decision to transfer into the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. After completing coursework in electrical, mechanical and civil engineering, he chose to focus on the mechanical discipline, and fulfilled the additional requirements to obtain a minor in mathematics.
Immediately upon graduating, Greg accepted an offer from IBM, where he held four different positions over the course of twelve years. He has experience as a test engineer, manufacturing quality engineer, mechanical development engineer and IT specialist.
After moving to a remote village in north-central Minnesota, he left IBM to realize a long-standing dream... to own and operate a business. He had significant brewing experience, and given there weren't any breweries within a 120-mile radius of his new home, he decided to found a craft brewery. While his products were highly regarded, the seasonal nature of the area proved impossible in terms of cash flow, so after five years he shuttered the business, but with a great deal of experience to show for his efforts.
Since then, he has worked as a substitute teacher and a CNC machinist, anticipating the latter to be a stepping-stone back in to an engineering role. In addition to entrepreneurship and engineering, writing has always been a passion of Greg's. He is currently working on a political conspiracy novel that he hopes to publish within the coming year.
