A transplant from Down Under, Grant’s production, direction, and news expertise have developed from years of experience working on deadline for a notable list of the world’s leading broadcasters, ad agencies, and corporations. Apart from being the go-to Washington news videographer for many U.S. and international broadcasters, Grant has a long list of program and documentary credits that includes: PBS’s “This is America;” Religion and Ethics NewsWeekly; interviews with heads of state and U.S. presidents for various news organizations; “The World Economy” documentary for NHK; Cisco’s “Road Show;” medical training series for WebMD; and crisis response, media training, pitch, technology training, and advocacy videos for leading agencies and PR firms.
Grant has earned a reputation as a top-tier videographer and producer who can deliver under the most demanding circumstances.
