Mechanical engineer by degree, Greg is a classic obsessive. NJ born but spent 22 years in Charlotte and Raleigh. Automotive enthusiast of the two- and four-wheel varieties. Mechanic, woodworker, general hobbyist. He found himself one day drinking Allagash Interlude during college and has been beer-obsessed since. Greg and Ted met up when Greg began working in the same office. The joy of drinking beer turned quickly into the joy of creating beer. After 6 years of brewing he’s ready to share his creations with his fellow Charlotteans.

This, of course, was not my beginning in the arts-achievement being the intersection of preparation and opportunity-no, my study began, like so many others, in engineering school. I had a roommate who held secret meetings in our room where I learned about the higher dimensions. From there, I learned to recognize the patterns. I could make the wheels turn and be transported.
After 10 years of desk surfing, aglow in fluorescent radiation, I had all but forgotten what I had learned those years ago-the wheels and the means to make them turn. It was again in secret I gathered the thread and was able again to see. Masters Mucha, Huxley, Melville, van Gogh, Twain, Coleman-Smith, Gladwell, Zinn, Keenan, Calgione, Grossman, Pollan, Gundersen, Lewis, and Rohr were my teachers. This is when my partner began practicing also. We gathered in a sweat lodge and, over tedious hours, unlocked the matrix to bring forth the elixir.
Then I was visited by the apparition. The name from beyond. Vibrating in the continuum waves. It was bestowed upon me with a mission- to deliver the message to the people. And I was to start in my own hometown. We were to practice this alchemy on every stitch and stone
