About Greg

Greg Marano is a former newspaper reporter and investment counselor who now teaches middle school and runs a writing and editing service that specializes in résumés. He’s directed school plays, biked across Iowa, studied in England, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, photographed surgeries in Colombia, unsuccessfully studied Russian, pressed the emergency stop button on an escalator in an airport once, and gotten seasick in every hemisphere on Earth. He lives outside Syracuse, N.Y., with his wife, son, one very good dog, and another dog.

He started The Man I Prefer to Be as a collaborative space where visitors can encourage others to be the best versions of themselves that they can.
