Greg Boegner is an American content producer and marketing executive living in the Algarve.  He moved from Los Angeles to Vilamoura in 2008 as a consultant for a film studio in development at the time in Portimão.  The economic crisis (and politics) quickly shuttered the project, yet Greg had fallen in love with the Algarve lifestyle and decided to stay. 

Determined to utilize his background in media and Internet, Greg launched PortugalConfidential.com in 2010.  The site focusses on modern, hip and cultural aspects of Portugal.  An aggressive digital branding effort and cross-promotion strategy succeeded in raising the profile and analytics of the site.  In 2014, spin off subdomains Portugal Confidential FAMILY and Portugal Confidential LGBT went live. 

Greg started his career producing space shuttle TV at NASA in Houston.  Moving to L.A., he acquired films and developed home video programming at Warner Bros. and Fox in Los Angeles.  During Internet 1.0, he supervised children’s content for eKids Internet in San Francisco.  In addition to his work on Portugal Confidential, Greg is also European Marketing Director for Almancil-based Premier FX.
