Grant first began thinking about planning while building homes in western North Carolina, asking himself, “should we really be building a 4,000 sq. ft. house on the side of this mountain?” That interest in the relationship between zoning, design, and natural and built environments led him to study at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (MUP 2010). Grant has worked at SRPEDD ever since, focusing on master plans, economic development, housing production, beautiful and easy-to-understand civic engagement, and commonsense project implementation.

Grant co-founded a part-time GIS and design firm, GIS Boston (active from 2010 to 2017), serving clients such as RKG Associates, Howard Stein Hudson, and realtors and developers in New England and beyond. During his undergraduate work at the University of Florida, Grant received a Fulbright Teaching Fellowship (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France) and the History Department’s Hauptman Medal (awarded to the outstanding graduating senior).

Grant is honored to serve as the Vice President of the Board of Directors and Co-Chair of the Land Acquisition Committee for Old Colony Habitat for Humanity. He is also a proud volunteer at the Annelle Delorme Hagerman Food Pantry.

Grant loves visiting cities and countrysides with his wife, son, and daughter. He’s an avid surfcaster, a proud Florida Gator, and an emerging basketball/soccer dad. Grant enjoys working with SRPEDD’s creative, collegial team of Comprehensive Planners and all our partners – from all professional, political, and personal backgrounds – across southeastern Massachusetts. He values consensus and takes joy in creating high-quality work.
