In 2001, Gregg began his professional filmmaking career with his first short film THE FINAL RESOLUTION. This award winning short screened at 15 international film festivals around the world, and also earned him a slot as a finalist in the PROJECT GREENLIGHT: DIRECTORS COMPETITION.

Gregg was soon after honored by SHOOT magazine in being selected for THE NEXT GENERATION: NEW DIRECTORS SHOWCASE, where he was one of 15 directors selected from around the world as “up and coming” talent. His commercial credits include spots for Discovery Channel, DTC (DeBeers), and Optimum Lightpath.

In 2005, Gregg was also selected by MVWIRE for its MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTORS ON THE RISE spotlight. A pioneer in full high definition production for Panasonic, Gregg was commissioned to direct and produce a video for Three Graces (Decca Records). Gregg’s other music video and promo clients include labels such as EMI Music, Virgin Records, Razor & Tie Entertainment, and PCMG/5050 Music Group.

In 2008, Gregg transitioned into episodic television and he has since produced and directed on some of television’s most riveting pilots and series including DOMINION (Syfy), HEMLOCK GROVE (Netflix), HOUSE M.D. (Fox), THE CAPE (NBC), PAST LIFE (Fox), and K-VILLE (Fox).

In 2011, Gregg partnered with Deran Sarafian to start BrokenToy; a new film and television production company. Together, they developed and sold their first pilot; ONE MILE STRAIGHT DOWN to Syfy along with scribe Skip Woods (X-Men Origens: Wolverine) and Alex Young (A Good Day To Die Hard).

Gregg now lives in Los Angeles, and he is currently a Director / Associate Producer on Season 1 of BLOOD DRIVE (Syfy) filming in Cape Town, South Africa.
