He takes pride in telling the stories of people who lost everything, helped by people who still had everything. Greg says “In a world where so much bad happens, I'm constantly amazed at all of the good that people display at the worst moments of their lives. It's human nature to help each other - and I consider myself lucky to tell those stories”.
