TECHIE, ARTIST & ENTREPRENEUR
My name is Grant. I like to describe myself a tech savvy, independent thinker capable of warping spacetime with my bare knuckles.
I’m a full time employee at Apple Inc. where I started my career troubleshooting various issues as they pertain to the iOS platform. I run a successful side venture in addition called Vril Studio. Vril Studio has helped scores of clients achieve the right look and feel for their businesses and brands through a range of print & digital means.
Before working at Apple, I designed advertisements for the parent company of USA Today. In late 2013, I began developing graphics and collateral for the Elon Musk inspired ‘Hyperloop Transportation Technologies’. Milestones achieved thus far have included the production of the group’s 76 page ‘crowdstorm’ whitepaper as well as the development of an official logo.
A BRIEF HISTORY
Before switching gears and entering a more business oriented phase of my life, I authored hundreds of politically based news & opinion pieces which were published directly to my personal website. I also conducted several big name interviews with figures including filmmaker Peter Joseph, futurist and industrial engineer, Jacque Fresco, author Federico Pistono, documentary filmmaker and producer Holland Van den Nieuwenhof, and aerospace engineer Douglas Mallette.
Long before speaking on serious political matters, I tried my hand in the realm of ‘dark satire’. In 2008, I launched the ‘Grant J. Kidney Revolution’, a psychological experiment which had attracted a large following on the now extinct social network, MySpace.com. During this era I self-published two books which served as a type of manifesto, outlining core elements of the false dogma espoused by my online persona. After much introspection, I determined that the controversy generated from these satirical pursuits really wasn’t worth losing a more reputable future over.
Aside from growing in my existing career at Apple, I greatly anticipate expanding my side venture, Vril Studio, and picking up many more clients from all over the world.
