Greg returned to the U.S. in 1989 and began his doctoral research at the University of California, San Diego's School of Communication. In San Diego he began to research the impact of music on social movements in Latin America, looking back at his own experiences and conducting interviews with proponent artists and cultural activists. His dissertation, "Guitarra Armada; The Role of Music in the Nicaraguan Revolution" will soon be published and has been used as a reference for researchers looking into this influential government.


With his doctorate degree under his belt and alongside many music and video production projects, you will find Greg teaching at these fine institutions:

University of California, Santa Cruz- Latin American and Latino/a Studies
