Gregory M. Yates was raised in a large and eclectic family in Pittsburgh, Pa. Gregory took to art at a young age. Throughout high school, he developed a keen sense of space and awareness to detail within his work. Upon High School graduation in 1994, he was encouraged by a dear friend to apply to the Museum School of Boston in Massachusetts. It was in Boston where he finely tuned and refined his artistic sensibility in several media like drawing, painting, and ceramics. While in Boston attending the Museum School and Tufts University, Gregory discovered radio broadcasting and eventually had a long-running show with a colleague titled “Who’s Your Paparazzi?”. Moving to California in 2001, Gregory took a graphic design job with a startup company in Silicon Valley. Working in Silicon Valley for more than 12 years Gregory was a liaison within many departments and lead project manager in developing crucial facets within the company’s core productivity like a full digital photography studio for documenting products. Gregory remains focused and dedicated to creating art within visual and multimedia. His inspiration comes from the world and his interpretation of life.
