Read on to learn more, including what sends chills down his spine!

Greg, what is one cool fact that most people don’t know about you?

I’m pretty good at card tricks and I’ve also been extremely lucky my whole life. I won free pizza for a year last week.

That is lucky! What scares you the most?

Without a doubt – spiders.

Fun fact – it is estimated that up to 6.1 per cent of the global population suffers from arachnophobia, which is the fear of spiders. Looks like you have plenty of company in your disgust for these creepy crawlers. Now, onto a less chilling question – what are your top three movies?

1.) Catch Me If You Can

2.) The Dark Knight & The Dark Knight Rises

3.) The Other Guys

Excellent choices for a creative guy. How about the top three songs on your playlist?

1.) Coming Home – City and Colour

2.) Show Me Love- Sam Felt (EDX Indian Summer Remix)

3.) Don’t Check on Me – Chris Brown

Do you prefer cake or pie… or both?


A man with good tastes! Now, based on your experience in the field, what is your best advice for anyone entering the media industry?

Take the time to plan a holistic strategy, it will allow you to fully project your marketing mission and to stay on course with it as well.

And finally, what is the advice you would give your younger self?

Everything is not a big deal. You can’t control what everyone else does, just what you do.

Thank you, Greg. Now that you know him a little better, give him a call at and learn how he can help take your brand further with an expertly crafted, holistic marketing strategy. Who knows… he may even share some of that pizza.
