Greg was born and raised just south of the Chicago area where he always enjoyed the outdoors without much thought behind it. He became passionate of it when he decided to study Recreation, Park and Tourism Administration at Western Illinois University. In his senior year of college he took part of a semester long outdoor leadership course living, traveling, and learning with a group of classmates throughout three different countries. Since college he has been working in the outdoor field programming and guiding from Michigan to Utah, with a couple spots in between. When not leading trips, he enjoys relaxing and catching up with family and friends, fishing the local area, and enjoying live music. Greg believes that the outdoors provide natural benefits and balance for everyday life.
