About Gregory
I'm a Canadian multimedia journalist now based in Glasgow. My most recent position was as an associate producer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Montreal where I used my interviewing, writing and reporting skills for the station's current affairs programs. I'm experienced with on-air and live radio, as well as writing for web or print and with investigative journalism. I'm also comfortable and capable of recording video and taking photos. 
I grew up in the USA and Canada and understand the interests of a North American audience which I can bring to my reporting.  
My favourite topics to report on are are science, environmental issues and issues facing marginalized communities-- but I enjoy working on a variety of subjects.
