More about Greg
I joined Blast…
Because they have an incredible team of talented and clever people! Who wouldn’t want to work with them?
A cool part of my job is…
Brainstorming solutions with others. Sitting down to solve a complex problem with a fresh cup of coffee and colleagues to work on it with is a great part of my day. Each problem is very unique and being able to build on other colleagues’ ideas with discussion is engaging and beneficial to all.
My consulting “philosophy” is…
Be honest, be an extension of the clients team and be forward thinking.
It’s not on my resume, but…
I can speak Icelandic (although not fluently yet!).
I spent some time training with recurve bows with a previous Great Britain Olympic Archery team.
One of my first jobs was…
Working as the assistant for my grandad who was a carpenter. It mostly involved sweeping sawdust up and being taught how to play darts.
The most interesting place I’ve traveled is…
Iceland. I lived in Reykjavik for close to a year and the land of fire and ice is well named. Each region is unique, even more so depending on the season you visit. I’ll never forget walking home with the northern lights above me on a regular basis!
My hobbies include…
When I’m not tinkering or doing DIY I really enjoy some relaxing time playing video games and watching sci-fi shows.
A favorite quote of mine is…
“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” – Roald Dahl
