The Little But Loud Caller
Greg was born in Tahlequah, Oklahoma in December 1953. Grew up raising cattle in Proctor, Oklahoma. Started schooling at Proctor Elementary where he had one teacher for eight grades. His 8th grade graduating class consisted for four (4) graduates. He then went to high school at Westville High School where he was active in FFA, Student Council and Football. Graduated in a class of 44 students. During the summers, Greg and his brothers did custom hay bailing to help each other (mostly his two older brothers) through college.
Greg attended college at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M at Miami, Oklahoma for his first two years, then went to Oklahoma State University and graduated in 1976 with a BS in Animal Science.
In 1980, Greg moved to Albuquerque, NM and in 1983 met the love of his life, Lynn. Lynn had been square dancing for 9 years, so before too long, Greg was taking lessons. In 1985, Greg decided to pick up a mic. He went to a local caller school and would call every chance he got - one night stands, guest caller, anywhere people would listen.
In 1988, Greg and Lynn welcomed their only child, Nicole, into the world. They drug her around with them to every square dance they attended. Nicole took lessons at the age of 7 and has been dancing ever since. NIcole gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Harley, in July of 2008. Greg hopes to live long enough to teach Harley to dance also.
Greg currently calls weekly for two different clubs in the Albuquerque area. He has also had the good fortune to call all over - Washington, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, and of course New Mexico. Greg and Lynn have sponsored 2 square dance cruises where Greg called on the ship though out the Bahamas, even through the Bermuda Triangle.
At heart Greg is just a good ol' county boy and doing what he loves, calling square dances and enjoying seeing the smiles on the dancers.
