Greg BaldwinWriter Bio: Greg Baldwin is a recent graduate of San Diego State University where he studied marketing and history. In his post-graduate days he has worked for an agency representing David Hasselhoff, contributed to several independent films, and trained rescued and sheltered dogs. Today he is continuing his education while searching for a fulltime career.

Greg grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and many of the experiences in The Scorsese Club were based on his days as a childhood filmmaker with his friends. His other work on the boards includes Addiction, a comedy about America’s obsession with an early social networking website, The Lost Ghost, a Gothic horror short, and Winner Takes All, a Monopoly-themed comedy short. Also in the works is the apocalyptic adventure All Highways Lead Downtown, a project two years in the making that Greg hopes to have finished this spring.
