Hello! I'm Greg Rickaby 👋🏻
👨👩👧👦 About Me
Just an ordinary father of 3 with a job in tech. I’m always trying to learn something new, everything from leadership skills, or mastering new technology, to playing music. When I’m not at work, I enjoy hangin' with the family. Check out my blog to learn more.
