I was misunderstood growing up. In elementary and middle school, I was on an Individual Education Plan (IEP), because I had ‘learning disabilities’. In reality, I just thought differently. I didn’t have disabilities, I was becoming a designer. Trained as an industrial designer, receiving his Bachelors of Science in Industrial Design from Virginia Tech in 2011; Greg shared a role in multiple interdisciplinary design projects because of his natural ability of leading product development, creative skill-sets and divergent thinking. Greg learned how to play nice with engineers, marketers, graphic designers and architects. In the Fall of 2011, he will begin dual enrollment for a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Technologies and a Masters of Science in Architecture at Virginia Tech, focusing on storytelling in design education.
