Adam grew up in Greensboro and attended Page High School. After attending William & Mary, he lived in Atlanta, Charlottesville, Atlanta again and Durham before returning back to Greensboro. At 33, he moved back with his wife and 3 young sons (with a 4th son on the way). His kids were pre-school aged and as he reflected about the environment that he wanted to raise them in, a mid-size city was more attractive so that he and his wife could be more involved in their day to day lives.
Originally they considered other mid-size cities in the region, but after visiting family back in Greensboro, they realized that Greensboro was very different from the city he knew growing up in the 80s/90s.
Between the downtown scene, the transformed universities and the new industries (aerospace, logistics), it was an evolving city that was emerging for 21st century growth. Specifically, he loves the combination of restaurants in Greensboro and the diversity of offerings in the area and find they don’t have time to try all of them.
Having been back for 7 years, we have loved our time in Greensboro. He worried about moving back would be a repeat of his childhood, but living in a different neighborhood, with many friends who aren’t from here, both him and his wife have found this to be a new home! Most importantly, living here has allowed them to make the lifestyle changes they needed to be very involved in their children’s lives. The lack of traffic and closeness of most destinations allow him to attend all of his kids activities and sports, and that has been perhaps the greatest gift his hometown has given his family.

Matt was born and raised in Greensboro and is a proud alumni of both the Greensboro Day School and Page High School. He attended UNC Chapel Hill, then lived in DC for five years and then moved back in Chapel Hill for a few years. He and his wife, Sarah, believe that North Carolina is a beautiful state, and Greensboro is one of the best cities. The quality of life in Greensboro is unparalleled. It’s warm here 9 months out of the year, but you still get “All 4 Seasons” as people like to say. Greensboro offers all the same amenities as other NC metros, but with a 5 minute commute and half the price. Plus, Greensboro is beautiful, eclectic, artistic, fun, great restaurants, very social, with outstanding educational opportunities for children and adults, and the people from here are the most genuine, sophisticated, and well-rounded.

Margaret left Greensboro for high school in Pennsylvania and college in Indiana from 1999 until 2006. After college, she moved to Maine to work on a lobster tour boat and then in a small financial institution for a couple of years. She moved back to Greensboro in 2008 to return to her North Carolina roots, be closer to family, and to take advantage of the accessibility of the community...and because she don't shovel snow.

Kristen grew up in Greensboro, went to Appalachian State for undergrad and then moved to Colorado for four years before coming back to the 'boro.

Michael was born and raised in Greensboro. After graduating from Greensboro Day School, he attended NC State University in Raleigh, NC where he stayed for 7 years for his undergraduate and graduate studies as well as to begin his work career. Michael moved to Washington, DC for the big city experience. After a year in DC, he was offered a position back in Greensboro. With a lower cost of living and increased salary, it was a no-brainer to come back. His biggest concern coming back was the possibility of culture shock and wondering what there was to do for young professionals. Upon his return, Michael was pleasantly surprised and has watched Greensboro continue to grow and offer more and more for young professionals. Now, with a family of his own, he can't imagine raising his kids anywhere else.
