Graphic Designer

Greg graduated from the University of Toledo (when it was known as TU!) with a marketing major. His first job worth mentioning was as production manager in the advertising department of the former Lasalle’s/Macy’s retail store in downtown Toledo. When the ad department operations was taken over by Macy’s Kansas City in 1984, he was hired by Norb Metzger as a typesetter at Type House, where over time and company name changes he moved into scanning/prepress and then graphic design. From 1968 to 1985, he edited/self-published the fanzine Japanese Fantasy Film Journal. It had a small circulation and lasted only 15 issues, but the magazine has received praise for introducing a serious analysis of Japanese fantasy, horror and science fiction films to US readers/fans. He has been adopting former racing greyhounds for over 14 years and currently is owned by 4 of them.
