Since 2018, Grant has contributed to both RTC’s modeling team and regional planning team. Grant believes that the small things planners do make a surprisingly great difference and that, through analysis, planners can sometimes reveal what those small things are. Grant’s primary role, within the metropolitan planning organization, is to transform data into useful information. A technology enthusiast, he often leverages geographic information systems and the R programming language in his work. Grant holds a B.A. in Humanities from Brigham Young University–Idaho and a M.S. in Urban and Regional Planning from The University of Iowa. In 2021, Grant achieved his goal of becoming a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners. Grant is a transit commuter and recreational bike rider. He and his wife Nikol are the proud parents of two daughters, ages two and five.
