Greg grew up in a tourist town in California. After graduation he found there were no paying jobs in the area so he moved to the Silicon Valley. He repaired cars for a number of years before he started working at a wafer fab equipment manufacturer. Greg first worked in final test being the last person to touch the equipment before it shipped to worldwide customers. He was then promoted to R&D where he built the first article of the Precision 9000, a revolutionary piece of equipment in wafer processing. That machine now resides in the Smithsonian.

For the last 20 years, Greg have been working for Apache Nitrogen Products. Operations, then QC, then Environmental, and now in process improvement.

When younger he raced motorcycles, both road race and enduros. Now Greg pleasure rides on his Goldwing or jis street legal dirt bike. Greg rode my dirt bike along the continental divide trail from Mexico to Canada. 2500 miles of trails and dirt roads in 11 days. He also play guitar in a band about once per month.

Greg's wife Kiri is a graduate of Benson High School. They are raising their niece who is a junior at Saint David High School. Go Tigers…er, uh, I mean Bobcats…
