Greg started dancing at 4 yeas of age in a recreational tap/musical theatre class. The following year he did competitive tap and then decided that he wanted to take a break from dance and instead tried gymnastics. That only lasted one year and when Greg was 7, he decided to join a boys rec hip hop class at the studio his sister danced at. At this point Greg was hooked. He auditioned to join the competitive team for the following year and added many different styles of dance over the following two years.
Greg started his partner work at the age of eight with a lyrical trio, which also included his current dance partner Momona Tamada, winning many overall awards. The following year Greg's dance teacher decided she wanted Greg to pair up in a duo with Momona, and they have been dance partners ever since. They started with a lyrical duo and over the years have added tap and contemporary duos. The two have become well known for their partner work, especially their overhead dance lifts, which have won them many overall awards.
In 2016 Greg and Momona auditioned for and were privileged to be selected to dance a featured duo in the Opening Ceremonies for the B.C. Summer Games. They have also worked with the same choreographers, being selected for multiple music videos.
Greg also has a love for acting and he has performed in many different productions including; "Into the Woods Jr.", "Annie Jr.", "Alice in Wonderland Jr." and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Jr." where Greg played Grandpa Joe. Greg was also fortunate to be able to act and have a featured tap solo in the Fraser Valley Stage's performance of "Hello Dolly". He is currently working on a new show called "Coming Home" being put on by Groove Force, where he has been cast in the principal role of Ethan.
