About the author (2010)

Greg's first impression of Manila when he moved there in 2004 was that it seemed like America's 51st state, oddly misplaced in Southeast Asia. It took him about a week to realise that the Philippines shared more characteristics with his previous home-away-from-home, Ukraine, than with his native United States. Feeling right at home, he quickly grew to love this land of a million smiles and its quirky culture. Formerly the editor of the Kyiv Post, Greg now splits his time between travel writing and editing technical reports for international organisations. When not banging computer keys he's usually off diving in the South China Sea or running around Manila's ultimate Frisbee fields.
