I am Greg Jones, a loans consultant and tech lover. I love outdoor mountain biking and since I bought a GoPro Hero 3, I am able to relive the strenuous hill climbs and scary downhill drops. This not only allows me to see the trails from a different perspective, but this allows me to monitor my form and improve where necessary.
