A lifelong passion for both the visual arts and the act of building steered Greg to a career in Architecture. He attended Monmouth College concentrating in sculpture and photography, with interests in mathematics and physics, simultaneously interning at the Talisman glass studio in Chicago. He earned his Master’s in Architecture from Washington University School of Architecture where he participated in the design and refinement of their digital fabrication facilities, which supported his design work for several faculty members. Since entering the profession in early 2008 his experience has focused on fabrication and digital technology, working for such Chicago area firms as Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and Rafael Viñoly. Additionally, he has worked in the fabrication end of the design process. At Skyline Design, of Chicago, he designed furniture making use of the CNC and Laser manufacturing processes. And for the facade fabricator, Metal Design Systems, he used laser scanning technology to rapidly gather 3D surveys of existing structures, design new components, then coordinate with digital fabrication to rapidly build these new components.

Returning to the Architectural world, Gregory is combining design concepts with technology and fabrication.
