Despite being saddled with a degree in photography, Greg has been working as a professional software engineer for over twenty years. His experience has included desktop database applications, retail kiosks, embedded software for gambling devices and pinball machines, and websites in over half a dozen languages. For the last five years, Greg has been actively involved in the Drupal community, co-authoring Drupal 8 Module Development and, in March of 2011, being named as lead of an initiative to improve configuration management in Drupal 8.
Greg lives in Portland, OR with his cat Ozu. In his spare time he plays pinball and listens to music that is loud.
