Since Greg has been working from home, he has become a bit more domestic with a new love for cooking, and the cooking channel. Putting a meal together for himself and his wife, Marie, is more fun than work, especially while sipping a glass of wine. Greg also enjoys painting with acrylics and oils and creating what he calls decorative art, which has now filled most vacant walls around the house. Greg has 2 married children and 3 grandkids, with whom he and Marie spend as much of their free time as possible.
