Grant has been boating for well over 15 years. He learned to whitewater kayak at a summer camp in North Carolina, and has been drawn to the water ever since. Grant has taught for Renaissance since 2009. He is an avid and very talented playboater and spends every spare moment he can out on the water. In more recent years, Grant helped launch Nextstraps, company that produces sunglass retention straps. When he's not working, you will find him anyway in the state, seaking out the best play waves and hardest whitewater Colorado has to offer.
