According to the release:
Gregory was born and raised in Mammoth where he spent his winters on the slopes and in the Unbound Terrain Parks.

After starting working in the terrain park four years ago, Gregory brings his ambition and education into design, construction, maintenance and operation of the Unbound.
“I am very exited to be leading the new Unbound. Mammoth has always been at the leading edge of the industry, but especially in the park," said Gregory. "With Josh's creative drive and unparalleled experience, and the existing operational team that we have here, I have no doubt that we can recreate the action sports experience at Mammoth as we know it. I'm thrilled to have one of the best opportunities in the world at the resort and parks that I grew up in."
