Greg’s spirit and drive embody HERITAGE, NATURE PRESERVATION and the ARTS, having purchased “Doctor Kay’s” historic home on Main Street Schomberg in 2006 with his wife Tracy.
They came to Schomberg to fulfill a decade-old dream to live in a small town setting in a rural community, to pursue their interest in heritage restoration and gardening, and to pursue Greg’s passion for fused glass art as a full-time business.
Greg and Tracy restored the Doctor’s 80+ year old horse barn to accommodate a fully functioning fused glass studio: Greg owns and operates Gotham Glassworks from within it, placed within the multiple sculpted rear gardens of the property that are often seen in local King garden tours.
Doctor Kay’s house and property suit the couple’s needs more than adequately. They plan on living and working in Schomberg indefinitely, hopefully well into their retirement years.
Greg’s 20+ years of business experience crosses several industries including power, telecommunications and internet communications. An M.B.A. and B.A. graduate from York University (1989 and 1986, respectively).
Greg is active in the King community: he serves on the boards of Arts Society King (chairing the annual Schomberg Village Street Gallery in September), York Region Arts Council and Concerned Citizens of King Township. Greg also serves and assists various other community groups in King including the Schomberg Village Association, the Dufferin Marsh Committee and Kettleby Fair.
