Greg inherited much of his passion for K-12 school planning from his architect father, Bill Davis, who is credited with building hundreds of schools throughout California during his career, which spanned decades. Greg honed his own K-12 planning skills by means of demographic master-planning – helping to pioneer the K-12 demographic industry’s use of GIS (geographic information system) software programs, which are specifically customized for K-12 planning efforts. Over the past 35 years (nearly 25 as president of Davis Demographics), Greg has assisted hundreds of school districts throughout the United States with their planning efforts through consulting services and the implementation of GIS-planning software tools. In Greg’s spare time, he and his wife enjoy traveling and attending historical re-enactments, both smartly dressed in authentic attire. One claim to fame of Greg’s, who enjoys auto racing, is his impressive attendance of 33 Indianapolis 500 races. He even has a finish-line-inspired checkered tie he plans to wear as the Indy race gets closer. Greg, a “Forrest Gump” of his generation, has shaken hands with a U.S. president, sat with Mario Andretti at a victory banquet and welcomed A.J. Foyt in the 1977 Indy 500 victory circle. Greg is also pretty good at table tennis.
