Crew Bio: Greg Etheridge

Greg Etheridge has been with UsagiMed for twelve years. Greg started working with Anime Weekend Atlanta with our very own Laura Block. (Back when UsagiMed was still called Bunnies Without Borders.) Greg says, “Before that, Laura and I worked as part of a federal-level, disaster medical response team. She brought me into her department at the con.”

Greg is a veteran of the U.S. Army and has worked in public safety for twenty-five years. He is a paramedic with the Fire Department and also works on his local SRT (SWAT) team. Greg is a state-certified fire, police and EMS instructor. He also serves as his department’s Deputy Fire Marshal… “So change your home detector batteries!”

When he isn’t working, Greg enjoys RPG games, Game of Thrones, and is a HUGE movie buff. He says, “If you want to watch some anime with me you will have to go old school.” Greg enjoys classic shows like Speed Racer, Star Blazers, and Battle Of The Planets. There is a good chance when you see a cosplayer in one of these costumes it will be Greg. Don’t hesitate to say hello.
