About Gregory

A member of the Dramatist Guild, Gregory has been in the theatrical business for over twenty five years as an actor, director, writer, and producer. He spent six years as the Artistic Director of 4th Wall Theatre in New Jersey where he directed and produced several shows and implemented a new musicals in development series. He managed an arts center on the campus of a college for over 7 years and now is the Theater Manager of the Irvington Town Hall Theater in Irvington, NY. He is an award-winning author of three novels, two children's books, and several musicals written & produced for the stage.

Gregory has been a freelance writer for many online sites including Broadway World and Huffington Post. He spends time traveling to schools to speak about his children's book on autism awareness.

As someone who has produced, directed, and written for the stage, Gregory always wanted to veer out into the world of film. In 2006 he directed a stage production of the musical "Kiss of the Spider Woman" and because of the main character of Molina's obsession with film being so prevalent in that show, he decided to add a film toward the end of the play. He wrote a short, they shot and directed it in a day and his first film short was viewed by all those that attended the play over three weekends. He has since gone on to write & direct the award-winning short film "Mother" based on his 2011 book PROUD PANTS. The film won him Best Director in both Boston and LA. He also wrote the screenplay "He Is Gone" based on the book MISSING by Drake Braxton.

Gregory is looking to connect to filmmakers in search of source material for scripts and discuss his published novel's potential to be adapted as screenplays.
