Greg began drumming in the 3rd grade with the concert band. Shortly after he began taking private lessons behind the drum kit and progressed through marching band on snare drum. After marching in the West Chester U. Band, he decided to focus on drum kit alone. Greg volunteered his time playing for Calvary Lutheran and also joined a rock/folk band that plays in and around Philly called, "The Band of Rivals". Greg is excited for the opportunity to play for Emmanuel Lutheran because he grew up just down the road. Greg was an '09 grad of Owen J. Roberts, and has lots of friends and family in the area. During the day you can find Greg in Malvern personally training general clients, and some with special needs.
