Hey, I'm Greg!
Greg is constantly humbled and fascinated by nature, drawn to bats, millipedes, vultures, Bristlecone pines, and other of nature’s underdogs.
He spent years working, rambling, making friends, and sketching within the walls of the Field Museum in Chicago, producing site-specific multimedia work for exhibitions awhile taking on a variety of illustration projects on the side.
Now operating Workshop 108, he and his partner, Taylor, engage in collaborations ranging from digital projections on topo maps at the Natural History Museum of Utah to helping The Peregrine Fund create an art installation in their World Center of Birds of Prey in Boise.
Greg received his BA in history from UC Berkeley with graduate studies in biomedical visualization at University of Illinois, Chicago.
He loves the blues, throwing frisbees to his thrill-seeking canine, and joining his wife on camping excursions. Currently living in Boise, he will always include Chicago and California as home.
