Hi, I'm Grant.

 

I conduct research, write grants, and talk about media.

 

I have 5 years of experience applying qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research for a variety of purposes from understanding US voters' news consumption behavior during the 2020 election to assessing teletherapy efficacy. As a media theorist, I conduct independent research on how meaning is constructed in everyday life through, with, and alongside communication and media technologies.  

For more on my work as a research professional, check out my CV.

ABOUT ME

I'm a research professional, grant writer, and media theorist interested in digital media technology in everyday life. I'm particularly interested in the implications of these technologies on community and individual well-being and civic engagement.

Prior to my current work, I was an actor. I even hold a bachelor of fine arts in acting. During my undergraduate studies I picked up a sociology minor and learned that what I loved about theater wasn't the act of performing but theater as text and method--a medium to explore humanity. 

 

In pursuit of further ways to interpret social action , I continued my studies at  Georgetown University for my MA in Communication, Culture, and Technology (CCT). Through my coursework and research  appointments, I developed extensive experience with social scientific research methods that I used to write two peer-reviewed publications where I employed modified ethnographic methods to answer questions at the intersection of digital media, temporality, and the COVID-19 pandemic. I also taught courses on interdisciplinary research methods and critical media theory, and presented at six conferences including national meetings of the Midwestern Political Science Association and the American Sociological Association. 

 

I now use my theatre training to creatively communicate to stakeholders in a variety of contexts whether it is my current work grant writing for community health and climate tech  projects, my self-produced  podcast, Media, Culture, and Why we feel like crying so much or, my exhibition of documentary photos from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks for stopping by my website. Be sure to hit my line on the contact page if you want to talk research, media theory, or grant writing.
