Meet the Staff: Gregg Fritchle
Find out about the people behind HPC:Factor, what makes them tick, how they came to be here and what they do when they're away from the keyboard.
Native (or maybe naive) Southern Californian
Enrolled in the University of Southern California (Fight On!) at age 16; bachelor's degree in psychology 1981
Master's degree in psychology 1985, California State University, Los Angeles
Social worker in child welfare services for 21 years
InterestsInterests: well, at least one is pretty obvious!
Aside from that my primary interest is social activism - I've been a political and/or labor activist for most of the past 18 years, which has helped this shy little boy grow into a pretty obnoxious man (as evidenced by the phrase in the middle of my signature).
I reside in a local suburb of Los Angeles with about 30,000 residents, where I've run (unsuccessfully) for my City Council twice. Currently a candidate for the California Legislature.
I'm also into off-road riding, as evidenced by my avatar (no, it's not me - Microsoft gets credit for that one).
Needless to say, I like intellectual pursuits as well - I'm an avid chessplayer who once defeated one of the UK's strongest grandmasters in a tournament in Hawaii in 1998.
