Portrait of Greg-1


Greg dressed as both a Pirate and a Viking. He attended various pirate events, such as the Ventura Pirate Festival at Ventura Harbor. But he also went to an event which occurs every September in Solvang, California called Danish Days.

Greg had been doing this type of costuming and attending events for over 20 years. Previously, his brother and he attended a Renaissance Fair in Santa Barbara on a regular basis. That’s how they got the “fair bug.” Greg met really interesting people with whom he would hang out.

At the time I met Greg, he said he was doing anything from charity events, to hanging out with other costumers, to bringing people from communities together.

Greg was born and bred in Fillmore, California, USA and that was where he was living when I met him.

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet."
