I wrote this story on the love/hate relationship between Victoria and the cruise ship industry for Douglas. It's been a lot of fun diving into these stories that have some pretty polarized opinions and talking to people on both sides. This was certainly no exception.
"I just have to commend you, Greg, on your talent and journalistic integrity. You are an island of hope in an ocean of generally otherwise shamelessly incompetent metal journalism. I wish more writers were made of the stuff you are." - Karl Sanders, Nile.
I'm a freelance journalist based in Victoria, B.C. I write regularly for publications such as Revolver, Exclaim!, Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles, Douglas, Alternative Press, Island Parent, and more.
