Inspired by Disney films since the first grade, Greno started as a young boy writing and drawing comic books and strips.[2] In 1996, during his junior year at Columbus College of Art and Design, he was hired by Walt Disney Feature Animation.[2] He started there as an animation cleaner on Mulan (1998).[2] Being creatively unfulfilled, he switched to story development.[2] He then contributed as a story artist on Brother Bear (2003), wrote a screenplay and worked as a story artist on Meet the Robinsons (2007), and supervised the story on Bolt (2008).[2] With the short film Super Rhino (2009), he made his directorial debut.[2] In 2006, he took over a long-in-development project Tangled, and chose Byron Howard, with whom he had collaborated on Bolt and Super Rhino, as a directing partner.[3] The film was released in 2010 to a great critical and financial reception, and was followed in 2012 by Greno and Howard-directed short film Tangled Ever After.

Greno is directing an animated film, titled Gigantic. Loosely based on the fairy tale of "Jack and the Beanstalk", the film is scheduled for a 2020 release.[4]
