After receiving his BBA from UT Arlington, Greg earned his Private Pilot’s License. Shortly thereafter, he was commissioned as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy where he served as a Naval Flight Officer in the S-B Viking aircraft. During his six years in the Navy, he deployed overseas onboard the USS Eisenhower and USS George Washington.
In 1998, Greg was appointed as a Special Agent in the FBI. As part of his collateral duties in the FBI, Greg served as a part-time surveillance pilot. He was also a photographer and Team Leader for the Evidence Response Team (the FBI’s version of CSI). In this capacity, he received extensive training in photography and photographed multiple national-level crime scenes including Fort Hood and Sutherland Springs.
