Greg is The Herald's first-ever Strategic Director. In this role, he works on a variety of things including content package planning, website management, online strategy, infographics, photos, videos, multimedia, data journalism, and reader engagement.

Greg has served a wide range of positions at The Herald. He started as a Contributing Writer in the fall of 2010, becoming a Staff Writer in December. For 2011, he served as a Senior Staff Writer on the Planning & Facilities Management beat; he covered topics ranging from building construction and renovation projects to campus planning and expansion. In the spring of 2012, he served as a News Editor as well as The Herald's first Online Editor. As Online Editor, he engaged in many initiatives to improve The Herald's web presence, including redesigning portions of the website such as the home page. Starting in July 2012, he spearheaded The Herald's transition to this new website. In the fall, he served as the Special Projects Editor, a one-time position in which he continued to work on the website, worked together with the business staff to plan special issues, and worked to improve the presentation of content in the paper by creating graphics and working with other editors on "package planning." Greg is a Herald Poll guru — he served on the planning committee for the Spring and Fall 2011 student body polls, he chaired the committee for the Spring 2012 poll, and did a lot of behind-the-scenes work for the Fall 2012 poll.

Greg is a Class of 2014 double-concentrator in Geological Sciences and Urban Studies. He has a range of interests, including transportation, urban planning, geology, geography, GIS, graphic design, web design, newspapers, and education. He has been known to write long emails, but with lots of bullet points.
