January 2011


Gregory S. Lamb is semi-retired. He studied Geography as an undergraduate, earned his Masters Degree in International Relations, and was awarded a fellowship in Public Policy from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

Lamb's writing career began as a passion and past time during his youth and undergraduate education. His formal writing career shifted to technical writing during his professional years.

He lives with his wife Cindy in Portland, Oregon. The Lambs have three grown sons.
