Greg was raised in Cleveland, Ohio, where he discovered the beauty and secret wonders of nature. He attended Bowling Green State University, graduated with a Bachelors of Architecture. Greg then moved to the east coast to complete a Masters of Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with honors and the Alpha Rho Chi medal for community leadership. Recently, Greg has taught interdisciplinary design at Brown University, Roger Williams University, and the Rhode Island School of Design. Greg has spoken at various events and conferences on topics including design, education, technology, and culture.
Greg loves to share his passion for nature and birding with others, and giving back to local communities. He leads nature walks for local organizations such as Audubon Society of Rhode Island, and is developing a partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rhode Island to bring nature walking to traditionally underserved communities, an effort that is sorely needed in our country.
Outside of work, you can find Greg exploring the trails, beaches, and ponds of Rhode Island – looking for birds and other cool wildlife. To find out what interesting creatures Greg has seen lately, follow him on instagram @gregnemes.
