I'm Greg. I live in Brooklyn with my wife and two kids. I enjoy building things and telling stories. When I have free time, I tend towards coding, writing, and photography. Since 2011, this blog has been my small corner of the Internet where I get to play with all three.

  • Layoff. Thoughts on my last day after nine years at Twilio. (2023)
  • Cruise. Reflections on a recent trip with my family. (2022)
  • Dad. Thoughts from the son of a preacherman. (2022)
  • TRS-80. How I started coding at six years old in 1986. (2015)
