"I have a passion for software development. Being able to create something that is useful to other people, especially solving difficult problems, is very rewarding to me."
Some people know their calling early in life and set their sails in that direction. Others stumble upon a career path then ends up combining their skills and passion in a way very few people experience. Greg's life is the latter. Although he's always been interested in technology - his first computer was an Osborne - it wasn't until he became a partner in a family business that he discovered his true calling. Back in the 1980s, his family's construction loan company needed to automate. Greg developed the software program that did just that.
Now, as president of Nortridge Software, Greg is responsible for the strategic direction of the company. He is also the chief technology officer, managing the development team, as well as the chief architect of the NLS product. He's been with Nortridge for more than 23 years, serving as president since 2005.
When not working at Nortridge, Greg is traveling to foreign countries, running, hunting, cooking, and spending time with his family. And - you guessed it - he also enjoys solving tough coding problems in his spare time. He's a California native now living in Corona, Calif., with his wife, Lurean and their three teenagers.
