FACILITATOR & EDUCATOR
As a world traveler, Greg knows first-hand that there’s a lot to be learned from cultures across the planet. His programs are actually applied philosophy designed to highlight indigenous values. Concepts like balance, celebration, connection to nature, gratitude, inclusion, positivity, respect, ritual, service to others, and unity all serve as positive examples for healthy, happy, and productive lifestyles for modern society.
Greg supports the idea that there's a natural order to things and that we cannot holistically separate ourselves from these inherent rhythms of life. As a facilitator he works to strengthen the connections to these timeless principles. As an educator, he teaches how we can do this in partnership with the ancient wisdom traditions of the world.
Greg holds a graduate certificate in Transformative Leadership from the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly the Tai Sophia Institute) and a BA in Communication from North Carolina State University. He is a US Air Force veteran. Greg is a past president of the Drum Circle Facilitators Guild. He has been awarded three competitive arts grants for professional development: two to study music of the African diaspora in the Caribbean (Cuba 2011 and Belize 2015), and one for specialized equipment to work in healthcare settings (2018). Greg regularly facilitates interactive and inspirational programs for groups of all sizes.
Greg digs hammocks, thrift shops, mid-century modern design, sailing, vintage hi-fi, iPhone photography, and great stories. He enjoys travel for cultural exploration. Greg likes ethnic food and great coffee. When he's really still and quiet, he sometimes manages to write interesting narratives and a bit of poetry.
Greg's happy place is near the sea, surrounded by great music, his sweetheart Annelies nearby, and a tasty beverage in hand.
