The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
Greg grew up near Raleigh, North Carolina, where he spent the vast majority of his time drawing, building things and playing games. As Greg grew older his Legos and Play Doh were replaced by early multimedia software such as HyperCard, level editors, video games, and a fascination with non- traditional sculpture. Greg studied Multimedia Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina Asheville, where he first learned how to animate in Flash. Enchanted by the seemingly limitless possibilities of the shape- and motion-tween coupled with the potential for interactivity and dynamic story- telling, Greg was soon spending most of his time pondering ideas for animations and sketching out stories. After graduating, Greg spent several years working as a graphic designer. As much as he enjoyed his work, he couldn't deny that his true passion lay with gaming and animation. At Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center, Greg hopes to begin an exciting career working to realize the wonders of the human imagination as a concrete part of our everyday lives.
