Get to know a Momenteer: Greg!
Greg is such an important part of who we are at The Moment. He drives our practice, challenges us to achieve greater social purpose, and makes us laugh all the time. Greg is known for his “zingers” that either cut to the chase or live on in studio infamy. His desk is always the messiest in the studio (closely followed by Carolynn), but that’s a sign of awesome creativity! Greg can always be counted on to come up with a new option–even when you’re done with hearing about new options. He’s a well travelled, super-interesting multi-disciplinary fellow (physics, many languages, music on the side). I, for one, feel so lucky to have Greg as a colleague and a friend.
