As a writer Greg is driven by the passion to tell stories that he finds meaningful. Much of that has to do with looking at the world differently and expressing it in a way that is both entertaining and though provoking. He works consistently, writing four to six hours a day while on a project. Though writing is often a difficult process, he finds the progression of a creative work a highly fulfilling and exciting endeavour that is well worth the time and effort.
