About Greg:

Greg was first diagnosed with ADHD at 10 and went untreated until he was re-diagnosed at 33, after procrastination on a big project made him leave the hospital shortly after the birth of his little girl. Greg has a degree in computer engineering and law, and works as a patent attorney in Silicon Valley. During COVID, Greg found his way to ADHD reWired and is a graduate of season 23 of ADHD reWired’s Coaching & Accountability Groups, and joined season 25 and 26 as a peer-mentor (or “ADDmin”) supporting other members of the award-winning coaching program. 

If you want to hear a story about some mind-blowing growth from one of the most cynical skeptics we’ve ever encountered in the coaching groups, then this is the podcast you need to listen to.
