When he's not in a booth with headphones on, you can usually find him sporting headphones behind "the decks" at many a music event. A veteran nightclub DJ of many years, he has jumped at the opportunity to play music and organize late night dances at many of the conventions he attends. Greg is also a member of Project BECK, who perform music from the anime Beck Mongolian Chop Squad, and has had a blast reliving the music from that show with his friends. Thrilled to be able to share his love of music with anyone willing to listen - from packed rooms at anime conventions, to the legendary stage of The Knitting Factory (NYC), he's always ready to make a little noise.
