Before becoming Gridium’s first employee, he developed applications in the fields of marketing research and biostatistics. Greg and his wife live in Chicago where they enjoy all kinds of music and spend their free time keeping track of their two grown children, two dogs, and a noisy parrot.

When he’s not falling off a surfboard, he’s riding a bike on the Bay Area’s roads and trails.

Melanie Wade
