Tell us a little about yourself and family- Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.
Greg- I'm was born and raised local from the big city of Gales Creek. I was actually born in my house, the same house my Dad still lives in. I graduated from Forest Grove High School in 1998 and then went to PCC for my Associates degree and then started working for Intel after that, where I have been ever since. I met my beautiful wife Jessica, in 1998 when she was on a trip from Nebraska visiting family here. You could say it was love at first sight. We got married in 2002 and we now have 3 wonderful kids! Luke (13), Bella (11), Reid (7). We were finally able to move from our townhouse in Hillsboro last year and now reside out in the woods in Gaston on a couple acres with room for the kids to play. My main hobby and passion is hunting, specifically archery for Elk. I also love to fish, play basketball and golf, play guitar (although I consider myself retired), be with my family and just do anything outdoors.

Greg- I was talking with coach Mickey the other day at the box and he was saying how he feels it's good for everyone to have something in their life they do that is hard and challenges them (loosely quote, but you get the point). What he said really stuck with me and as I look back over my 8 month Crossfit journey so far I can see how I've already accomplished things I didn't think I would be able to do. Crossfit has helped me to break down mental hurdles that I tend to put in front of myself. Looking forward to seeing where I'll be a year from now!
