Greg was born in Maine, but at a young age moved to the small town of Port Charlotte, Florida. While growing up in Florida, Greg graduated from High School with Summa Cum Laude designation. This earned him a full tuition scholarship to the University of South Florida, where he would later graduate again with Summa Cum Laude designation for a Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a concentration in Biomedicine. During his time at USF, he researched antimicrobial responses from various bacteria, while also tutoring his fellow classmates in a wide range of courses. Plant Biotechnology is his true passion though, and he is currently studying for a Masters of Science and Business in Biotechnology at the USF Morsani College of Medicine.
