Like many in the web and multimedia industry, Web & Multimedia Project Coordinator Greg Roberts’ fascination with technology began at a young age, and with pornography. “Over the 11 minutes it took for that first raunchy picture to download, the course of my life came into focus.” When considering career options, “it was either web development, or fluffer,” Greg said. “I chose web development and I’ve never looked back.”
His proudest professional moment was the time he contributed to the first web banner to falsely proclaim “Congratulations, you’re a winner.” The statement has been a lifelong mantra for Greg, and even inspired him to get plastic surgery to permanently affix a winner’s grin to his face. “Long before Charlie Sheen made it popular, I was all about affirming my status as a winner.”
When he’s not at work, Greg enjoys spending time with his wife, his mistress and, if time allows, his kids.
