Greg, like many people, faced challenges in life that required a strong personal commitment for survival. He was a StreetWise vendor for 3 years before realizing his goal to become a part of the solution. Currently, he is actively involved with the training and management of StreetWise vendors. He manages with a velvet fist. Greg believes that change must come from within. He works tirelessly to instill in the vendor population those very same principles that he uses—specifically, self-discipline and a strong commitment to personal growth.
Outside of StreetWise, Greg writes and produces music for himself and Chicaqoland artists.
Greg’s vision is to continue to improve his position in life by becoming financially stable, building a strong family life, and improving the image of StreetWise vendors.
