Outside of Bond Collective, Gregg enjoys time with his wife and their dog, Loki. On the weekends Gregg can be found walking his dog near Union Square or grabbing a bite at Bond Sushi (not a plug, we swear). Gregg loves that Bond Collective provides flexible work spaces with an emphasis on design and that we are not a cookie cutter space. Gregg is engaging with a great sense dry humor, and a charismatic leader in our Bond Collective family. After being with us a few months, we thought it was the perfect time to introduce Gregg to our broader community, we asked him a few questions...
