Greg Rewis has been passionate about the web since putting his first “home page” online in 1994. His career has taken him around the world, from the early days of desktop publishing, to a start-up in Hamburg, Germany, the glory days of the web at Macromedia and finally his role at Adobe before trading in the travel to do some “real development” at Stremor Corp.

When not beating web technologies into submission, Greg spends his time hanging out with his co-author and wife Stephanie (Sullivan) Rewis (http://www.w3conversions.com/) dreaming of their next sailing trip on Geeks4Sail.com (http://geeks4sail.com/), or teaching his two sons the finer points of classic rock on the guitar and piano.
