A life-long Philadelphian and graduate of Central High School (274), Greg pursued his academic and athletic path as a college basketball player at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. However, in his first two years he suffered four concussions and had to retire from the sport he loved. He decided to finish his recovery back home, transferring to Temple University.
During his periods of recuperation, his mental and physical activity was extremely limited. This time of struggle is when he became an avid listener of podcasts. In early November of 2017, he started his own podcast, with a focus on the city he loves, Philadelphia!
Greg is now recovered from his injuries and has redirected his life and found a new love in podcasting!
Greg is passionate about basketball, culture, diversity, racial/gender/sexual/religious equality, social justice, innovation, and youth empowerment. He values honesty, open-mindedness, creativity, kindness, and love.
