Hi, I'm Grant. I am from Pittsburgh, born and raised. I went to
Notre Dame, and I loved every minute of it. I enjoy being outdoors,
especially on my bike, so I typically grow tired the Pittsburgh
winters. Though, I do like being close to my family so I'm very
grateful to have been able to stay here all these years.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in Research Administration for Pitt/UPMC in Psychiatry and really enjoy my job and the people I work with. Basically I help faculty in the Pitt Department of Psychiatry to submit and manage research grants.
I’m really good at
I'd like to say I'm a good bike racer, but really I just like to do
it. I have fun when I'm out on my bike and that's what's important!
I am pretty good at trivia and love going to trivia night for my
alumni club. I'm good at my job, too. And I think I'm good at
making my friends laugh with a stupid joke or dated Simpson's
reference or two.
The first things people usually notice about me
People probably quickly notice my sarcastic and goofy sense of
humor. I can be a weirdo sometimes...OK, most of the time.
Physically they likely can't help but notice that I am short. I
can't fight genetics, I suppose...oh well!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let's see...My favorite book is probably anything by David McCullough - I like historical narrative. My favorite movie of the moment really depends on my mood. My favorite TV show seems to change a lot as well. Recently The Walking Dead had been up there along with Game of Thrones. For music I really listen to just about anything - just ask! Food-wise I'm usually looking at standard American fare like burgers and barbecue.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order...
My bike - I call her Stella (Like the beer!)
My Kindle or its archaic older brother, AKA a good book.
My phone - this is pretty standard these days
Family and friends - another obligatory answer
Netflix - I tend to rewatch shows a lot!
Frozen dinners - I'm not much of a cook...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'd like to travel if I had more time for vacations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Possibly relaxing with some friends watching a movie or at a laid back bar with a spot to sit and have a conversation. During the summer I'm always looking for an excuse to spend some time outside on my deck with a good beer and good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was in college I had a brain and neck operation. Don't worry, though I'm OK now!
