His interest in technology began in 1983 when he received a Radio Shack TRS-80 computer and his first synthesizer i.e., a Roland JX-3P. This is when his love for technology and the arts began. Greg’s background includes 14 years of formal music training and a lifetime of music production.  In fact, he has worked with many of the biggest names in the Chicago music business that have come and gone over the last three decades. As a musician and an information technologist, Greg has always been at the forefront of technology for music production which made him a sought-after expert for production technology.

Philanthropic service is at the core of Greg’s soul and he believes that it is his duty to give back to his community.  By way of monetary donations, his intern-to-hire program at KFA, personal time, speaking engagements, mentoring programs, advisory committees, and God given talents, Greg has donated to many organizations over the last twenty-five years.  He has now founded the Greg Bush, Jr. Foundation, Inc. a not-for-profit organization.  Greg looks forward to educating the youth by sharing his experiences and providing seminars to the participants of the foundation’s programs.

Greg is inspired by the need to be purposeful, and the need to inspire African-American students to pursue science, technology, engineering, arts and math (S.T.E.A.M.) entrepreneurial careers. When asked what his legacy will be, Greg provided, “Professionally, I believe that my legacy will be that I always sought to do the right thing, the right way, the first time. Personally, I hope that my technology innovations will be known to have positively affected the lives of the many across the U.S., the African diaspora and beyond.”
