I've taken my own Hero's Journey and have become the Mentor. I'm sharing my knowledge of software with a new generation while I continue to write code for myself, novelists, and small businesses around Richmond, VA.
In 2011, using the Hero's Journey, I created the Agile Writer Method. It is designed to help beginning writers create a first-draft novel in 6 months. In 8 years I coached over 50 writers to complete their first-draft novels. The Agile Writer Method is based in part on Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey.
Now, I'm combining all my experiences to create the Hero's Way Secular Church. We're borrowing from the best minds in Hero Science to offer a community for like-minded individuals to strive to become the best they can be by following the Ideal of the Hero.
Greg is an effective and dedicated instructor. He shows an obvious passion for the content he teaches and devotion to the people to whom he teaches. I have personally benefitted from his readiness to spend hours taking deep dives into concepts and topics of pertinence to my growth as a developer. He is endlessly encouraging, and he doesn't give up on any person. I cannot imagine a better instructor or mentor than Greg.
Greg's Agile writing process is simply genius, and his active research into the elements of the story arch keeps things evidence based and grounded. Greg leads the Agile writing group through the process from start to finish, while he lends supports to each individual in their writing, their identity as a writer, and as a member of the writing community. At any given meeting, accountability for completing a storyboard (an Agile-approach based outline), for writing at least 10 pages per week once committed, feedback exchange, and writer-community events and opportunities are shared. Excellent work, Greg!
Greg embodies the true spirit of "agility" in every endeavor he pursues. He is innovative, sharp, witty, effective, and just a pleasure to be around. I'd jump at the opportunity to work with Greg again in the future!
Greg is an amazing individual who has opened up the world of professional writing to so many who have the motivation to publish and need a framework to help them develop their talents. I endorse him without reservation!
Greg is a very creative, insightful and observant individual who excels at translating his innovative thoughts into actual creative expression. He has a great ability to guide others in learning what they need to grow and succeed in their creative endeavors. And on top of all of that, he's just one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet!
Greg is very insightful and has great ideas. He is excellent at research and was a productive member of our task force contributing many ideas and suggestions to improve the manner in which we communicate with our residents.
While we performed in ComedySportz together, Greg was a steady source of both leadership and guidance for the troupe. I'd absolutely recommend Greg, particularly if you need a supportive partner who will help heighten you along to your goals.
