Greg was a member of the New Trier West High School Recording Jazz Ensemble in 1978 and 1979 . As a student, Greg was a very energetic, hardworking, talented percussionist who continued a tradition inherited from previous bands.
After a professional career spanning more than 40 years, Greg has now focused his energies as Director of Music and Ambiance at the Alpine Resort in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin. Greg has already produced a number of successful concerts, one of which brought alumni tenor saxophonist Steve Eisen (1971) to center stage appearing with the legendary band The Ides of March, which had a crowd of more than 2,500.
During his lengthy career Greg has performed and recorded in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Mexico, Ireland, and Hawaii. Greg has also worked extensively throughout the Hawaiian Islands leaving many reviews touting his percussive talents.
He is recognized for his teaching accomplishments as a member of the staff of AECG (Arts Education for Children Group). In that capacity, he conducted clinics and workshops.
His composition entitled Okonomi II composed with Taiko drummers Preston Jones and Yuta Kato was a collaboration to explore the similarities and differences between Western Drumming and Taiko.
