Grant grew up in the backwoods of Arkansas surrounded by nature. This instilled a love and appreciation for the outdoors at a young age. His time was mostly spent climbing, fishing, hunting and paddling around the natural state. With a love for travel, and a desire to see more of the world, he enrolled in a NOLS course in the Winter of 2017. This experience inspired Grant to make a career out of the thing he loves most in life, enjoying the outdoors and spreading that joy to others. Grant went on to graduate from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Recreation & Sports Management. He currently resides in Teton Valley, Idaho, where he spends most of his time climbing, skiing, and enjoying the outdoors as he always has.
