These six words are probably the most succinct bio I could write. Keep reading if you would like more, though!

My name is gRegor Morrill, a.k.a. gRegorLove. Yes, “Gregor is a weird name,” 1 and I know gRegor is a weird capitalization. You can pronounce it “Greg-or,” “Greg-er,” “Gee-reg-or,” or “Floyd.” I am not too picky about it.

I am 38—yes, really—and one of the most interesting things about me is that I had a pacemaker put in when I was 28. It was a crazy story and I am very grateful to be alive.

Computers have been a big part of my life since childhood. (Now I even have one assisting my heart!) I particularly enjoy making web sites and applications that look great and work well. Most of my work is in programming, but I have quite a love for design and typography. I have been told that I have a good eye for them, which I attribute to my talented friends rubbing off on me.

There are some amazing people in my life. I love spending time with friends, meeting new people, laughing, and making other people laugh. Laughter is one of the best inventions ever.

I love how powerful music can be. A song can fit exactly how I feel, change how I feel, or even transport me to a specific memory. It is a spiritual experience at times. Going to concerts is one of my favorite activities and I enjoy promoting the artists that move me.

While I have quite an interest in politics as a topic, I have grown tired of politics as a process. Liberty is much more interesting to me. I am opposed to initiating force to achieve political or social goals. I think it is wrong and only perpetuates a cycle of people wielding force against each other. We can peacefully mature beyond such systems.

My faith in Jesus as Saviour is central in my life and I strive to follow Christ in all I do. I believe that God is relational and thus we are made to be the same way. Through our relationships we have great power for good, for redemption. “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Luke 10:27)

Pronouns: he/him/his

The Ladies Man

gRegorLove Many years ago, my friend Phil Rivera found humor in my name and would often say, "Greg-or. Greg or what?" He pointed out that the name was not complete because there was nothing after the "or." Then he dubbed me gRegorLove with the simple reasoning that, "it's who you are." I did not care for the name at first, but I was just in denial. I soon realized that women everywhere were swooning over me, so it was a fitting name.

Not long after that, I was working on a new theme for my personal site. I thought having an online wife application was a fun idea, and thus gRegorLove.com was born on Valentine's Day, 2000. While much has changed over the years, the wife application has been a mainstay and has proved to be quite popular.
