He also brings nearly 30 years’ experience as a historic preservation advocate, public history professional, and a trained historian to bear on issues facing the dynamic and rapidly changing historic city of Boston. He has curated dozens of historical and fine art exhibitions, taught at the college level, and remains a frequent expert voice for thoughtful change in the city. Born in Boston, Greg regularly integrates personal anecdotes into his public media appearances.
