Gregory Patrick was in Berlin when the Berlin Wall was destroyed. He was seventeen years old. Originally from Savannah, Georgia, Gregory spent five of his later adolescent years in Germany. His father was a military man. Now in his early forties, Gregory has experienced more over the past few decades than most probably will in a lifetime. In recent years he has found stability, but it didn’t come easy. Currently living in Orlando’s Milk District, Gregory writes books and knits teddy bears to pay the bills.
