Having been largely ignored as a kid trying to learn himself from unanswered letters to the pros at the time, that shaped his foundation of his open "no secrets" philosophy. Using that thinking, Gregory devotes a lot of time to training young aspiring effects artists and answering their many questions in hopes of them learning the mysterious art form the correct way and by all means, the fun way without ever forgetting how difficult it was for his early -no internet years, learning as a kid. Every where he travels to teach his motto is "Your idea and my idea, become a better idea"Having been a student of Dick Smith's Advanced Makeup course, Gregory follows a lot of the late Mr. Smiths principles of experimenting and making what's known- better , in the effects field, so you can always find him in the FX lab on his days off experimenting and testing new concepts.
