Hi :) My name is Grant Lattanzi. I'm a qualitative researcher and multimedia artist interested in the intersection of digital technology, well-being, and daily life.
Before I began my work as a research professional, 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 theatre's ability to serve as a method and medium to explore human behavior and relationships.
In pursuit of further ways to explore 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 had 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 my research to stakeholders in a variety of contexts whether it is at my job conducting interviews and focus groups with licensed therapists to assess the efficacy of teletherapy or my exhibition of documentary photos from the COVID-19 pandemic.
I am happy to say I have officially relocated to New York City and am accepting clients for contract appointments! The goal is to leverage my flexibility as a freelancer to further develop my research skills and continue to refine my expertise on media in daily life.
