Episode 79 - Greg Smith: Guapo


Name: 79 Greg Smith Life Athletes, hello and welcome to episode 79 of the Life Athletics Podcast! Today’s guest Life Athlete is Greg Smith. Greg Smith is an english professor living and working in South Korea. I first met him as the best Ultimate frisbee player in the league where I was introduced to the sport. Over the years I got to know a man who strived to be his best self in all things. On the field, yes, but also and especially off of it. Watching how he and his wife have been raising their children, actively using the Ultimate frisbee community, was and is an inspiration. Greg joined me as he walked his dog one night in the hills of Daejeon South Korea.

I’m curious and always looking to learn.

If something doesn’t work I’ll change it.


Habit of Action: I like to cross things off of lists.

Greatest area of strength:

I’m good at simplifying concepts and communicating challenging content.

Training for this area:

Find a way to understand it yourself.
