Greg earned his first executive chef position at Forest Lake Club in Columbia, SC after working at many fine establishments in Charleston and Columbia. There he oversaw all the kitchen operations for three dining rooms as well as special events and weddings. After traveling and holding positions leading kitchens at private clubs and resorts in Maryland and Florida, he then assumed the role of Food & Beverage Director at The Members Club at Woodcreek & WildeWood in NE Columbia. He then accepted the role of Director of Dietary Services at an upscale retirement community, which is where he found his love for nutrition and meal planning. Helping people live better through proper nutrition became a passion for him. With that in mind, he decided to open Primal Gourmet right here in his home town to provide his community with a place to buy freshly prepared healthy food options that are convenient for the modern lifestyle. Greg currently resides in Cayce, SC with his wife Misty and Great Dane Luna.
