Although he's young, Greg's ascendance has been a long time coming. After his parents divorced in 1993, the 3-year-old would make weekend trips to visit his skier dad's new digs in the mountain town of Mammoth, California. At age 5, he started to ride, tagging along with Pops - a lift maintenance worker at the local resort - and learning by necessity to keep up. His skill developed early, and by age 11, the grom was entering competitions - the only competitor in has age group for the USASA. In the following years, he went bigger and bigger, honing his style and developing his competitive edge.
"When I turned 17, I just kind of woke up one morning and said to myself, 'It's time to do this. It's time to throw down,'" Greg says. With his new mental fortitude, Greg went on to make a name for himself in international competition in 2008. Holding nothing back in his riding is all he needed to dominate. Greg took first place at the 2008 World Cup in Quebec, and two second place World Cups at the Chevy US Grand Prix and the USASA Series in Copper Mountain, Colorado.
Now that he's been given the opportunity to compete at the next level, Greg is stepping up his commitment to meet the challenge, but he manages to keep a healthy attitude through it all.
