Greg is a social media and digital content producer and coordinator for the Chick-fil-A account. Originally, he was brought on board as a JS employee embedded in the News Media Branch of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While there, Greg established a multimedia video series around the agency’s “Vital Signs” monthly releases. He maintained and enhanced many programs, including Hometown Heroes, which connects CDC with their hometown media outlets.
Before joining our team, Greg was a digital content producer for Atlanta’s WXIA’s morning show unit. His day there began at 4 a.m., amplifying breaking news on the station’s social media accounts and generating specific stories for 11Alive’s website. His team won an Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Website and a Southeast Regional Emmy for Interactivity in 2015.
Prior to that, Greg was a Multimedia Producer for Kaiser Permanente in Sacramento, Calif. His role involved writing scripts, interviewing physicians and telling medical stories in compelling ways, a great precursor to his current work at the CDC.
After earning his journalism degree from Troy University, Greg began his career as a Sports Editor and Copy Editor for two community newspapers. Despite the long hours and weekend work, the perks were real. He says there’s nothing that compares to a confetti shower when you’re interviewing winners at an SEC Championship game.
Left to his own devices, you might find Greg running, sampling craft beer, attending a local concert, rooting for his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers or just making people laugh.
Greg and wife Katie share their home with their dogs Carter, Maxwell and Kingsley. In September 2017, they welcomed their first child, Elodie.
