Greg offers over twenty-five years of professional experience in single-family and multi-family residential, commercial, hospitality, and mixed-use developments, from pre-design through construction administration.

After earning his degree at Ball State University, Greg moved to California where he worked as a project manager at Berger Detmer Architects and Zack de Vito Architecture, San Francisco, California, and as a part-time consultant at Gray Architecture / GHA, Oakland, California. In 2001, he founded his own Oakland-based architecture and design practice, ellipsis a + d. He earned local accolades for the Michelin rated Spruce and two San Francisco Prize awards while collaborating with Veronica Hinkley Reck (IA). Continuing this collaboration, he later earned acclaim as the Architect of Record and Principal-in-Charge of the award-winning Octavia Court, San Francisco, California, a modern affordable housing complex for the developmentally disabled, partially funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Greg returned to the Midwest, joining Pappageorge Haymes Partners (PH) in 2013.
