Whether it's the thrill of playing hockey, the freedom of biking, the rush of skiing, or the exploration of the underwater world through scuba diving, Grant embraces life with passion. Currently, he's also testing the frozen waters, quite literally, by trying his hand at the classic sport of curling.

TL;DR: Grant is defined by Birkenstocks, my golden retriever, and my comfortable midwestern vibes. You know the vibes… always willing to invite you over for cards, casserole, and conversation where you goodbye say 15 times.
