About Greg Zeigerson

My initial fifteen minutes of fame took place when I was a ten-year -old cartoonist for New Jersey's Asbury Park Press leading to my appearances on TV's To Tell The Truth and in the National Enquirer. I created short live and animated films while studying filmmaking and journalism at NYU. Since then, I have written articles for the Asbury Park Press and other publications, produced TV shows for Queens Public Television in NY, and self-published a comic book. For a brief period, I  was an official caricature artist at Walt Disney World. Besides contributing to Parcbench.com, I perform the challenging work of being a father to twins, I edit medical and legal copy and I write spec scripts for TV and films.
