After working in marketing and business development for over ten years, Greg decided to pursue his passion for WordPress development and content marketing by starting his own company. Tired of seeing sites that look great but don’t achieve results, he founded Marketing Press to help business owners find the best of both worlds.
In addition to leading the company, Greg has become well-known in the WordPress community as a speaker and teacher. He has presented at several conferences (includingTechPHX, WordCamp LA, WordCamp Phoenix, and WordCamp Vegas), been featured on industry podcasts and regularly appears on popular shows (like WPwatercooler and his very own Marketing Press TV).
When he’s not working on code or content, Greg spends his free time mentoring at Gangplank, taking in live music in Tempe, AZ, or hanging out in his home state of New Jersey.
