Yo. I’m Greg, founder of GrassWrite.
I once worked for a log and timber frame home manufacturer, for a general contractor, for a grocery store, as a delivery driver, as a hockey school counsellor, for the governing body of Canadian cinema & television, as a retail associate, for one of the most recognized sports and entertainment companies in the world, for a global retail brand, for a post-secondary institution and for a boutique agency, just to name a few.
I know what you’re thinking: job-hop much?
Maybe. Some I left. Some I was fired from. I like different things and if something was making me unhappy, well, bye Felicia.
So is life.
As cliche as it may sound, I wouldn’t be who I am today or able to accomplish my goals without going through some of life’s, well, struggles. I got fired from my last job. It’s funny what adversity can do to your outlook on life. Fight or flight, really.
I went through an extremely difficult battle with depression. It took me a long time to come to terms with it and adequately combat those constant days of doubt and disarray. Yet, what it all taught me is that this life we have is precious, and before you know it months, or even years, can pass in the blink of an eye.
I started writing a blog a few years ago during my time spent in the United Kingdom on a working visa. There was something satisfying, and utterly addicting, about seamlessly blending words together to allow the reader to vividly visualize what you’re writing about.
Since then, I have worked as a copywriter for a few different businesses, ultimately leading to me branching out into the freelance world.
I have a passion for travel, sports, reading and writing, business, and technology.
I truly believe in this digital climate we live in that the need for creative and engaging content is what will set a brand apart from the competition.
And that’s what I’m here for.
