Five Things You May Not Know About Me

San and GFM wrote this type of intro post so I figured I would do one too. It is entirely a cool coincidence that this five things post is on November 5th.

  1. My name is Gregor and I typically stylize my name online as gRegor. Why? A long time ago I was signing an email and I mis-capitalized it. I looked at it and thought, “Hey, that’s neat,” and kept it ever since.
  2. I live in San Diego, CA and work remotely as a web developer for a small company back in Indiana. I’ve been with the company for *counts*… twelve years (wow). I really enjoy it and it’s given me the opportunity to live in Chicago; Bellingham, WA; and now San Diego.
  3. I am a cyborg. I had a pretty wild heart incident when I was 28. Thankfully I recovered well, but as a precaution I’ve had a pacemaker ever since. It was replaced once since then and I have the old one. I wrote a retrospective about it.
  4. I took about ten years to get my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. Partly in my defense: that heart incident happened toward the end and I didn’t go back for a couple years, during which I already got my current job. Better late than never!
  5. I used to book and promote concerts in Indianapolis. It kind of fell in my lap. My friend Tim once booked a Blindside concert and he was later offered a last-minute booking for Five Iron Frenzy. He offered it to me and I took him up on it. It was a lot of fun and I kept doing it for several years. It was rarely a money-making venture, though.

The biggest revelation out of this is that it has been 12 years since your heart incident. Holy cow. 😳

Haha, I didn't expect there to be much new to you in there. Yeah it's pretty wild to think back on everything that has changed.

Yeah, it is strange to think it has been that long. Where has the time gone?

Neat to learn more about you. Do you like to work remotely?

San: Generally I do. I love the flexibility it has offered. I do have to be intentional about getting out and being social, though.
