He presides over an executive talent firm, providing coaching for executives and Fortune 500 companies. Greg's interest in photography started when he was a child, and he majored in photography as an undergraduate.

He loves the idea that having his iPhone and photography applications is like having a virtual darkroom in his pocket. Greg received a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, an M.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and his Ph.D. from California School of Professional Psychology, Berkeley.
