Art Direction, Design, Animation, Illustration

Email me at: gcgreg@gmail.com

I'm a graphic designer, animator and art director that creates story driven visuals for a range of clients in news media, advertising and broadcast in both New York City and Los Angeles.

 

Currently, I'm an art director at CNNMoney. Before that, a designer and lead animator at The Guardian. I also worked at The Daily, an iPad-only news app.

 

 

I studied at California Institute of the Arts and earned a BFA in Graphic Design. I'm lucky that I still love what I do. I also like to draw and do printmaking.

 

I live with my lovely wife, who used to work as a mechanical engineer, then turned professional chef and is currently studying to be a Registered Dietitian.
