Some questions from my past projects include:
How do social media sites influence the ways people express themselves?
How are cultures and subcultures influenced by disruptive technologies?
How do digital technologies impact the ways people use their time?
How can people make better use of digital technology to tell stories?
Got ideas for questions? Let's talk!
Hi! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Grant. I'm a qualitative researcher and multimedia artist interested in the intersection of digital technology and daily life.
Before I began my work as a social scientist, I was an actor for 9 years and hold a bachelor of fine arts in acting. During my undergraduate studies, I realized that what I loved about theatre wasn't the act of performing but because theatre is a method and medium to explore the social world.
In pursuit of further ways to explore the social world, I spent the past two years at Georgetown University working towards my MA in Communication, Culture, and Technology. Through my coursework and research assistant appointments, I've had the chance to develop extensive experience with social scientific research methods that I used to generate two peer-reviewed publications where I employed modified ethnographic methods to answer questions the intersection of digital media, temporality, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
I now use my theatre training to creatively communicate my research to stakeholders in a variety of contexts whether it is at my new job conducting interviews and focus groups with licensed therapists to assess the efficacy of tele-therapy or my upcoming exhibition of documentary photos from the COVID-19 pandemic.
I graduate in May and after a summer of travel and life-living I will be moving to New York City to launch my career as a freelance consultant and further develop my research skills with the eventual goal of earning my PhD in communication.
