Grant grew up on the Olympic Peninsula and studied English Literature & Philosophy at the University of Washington. After conducting a one-year experiment in urban farming, he ran Seattle-based KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn from 2009 - 2016, growing it from initial concept to 20+ shops around the world.
Today, Grant envisions a world in which humans live in harmony with the natural systems that govern our planet. This includes is a critical shift from exploiting animals in factories to nurturing them in their natural environments, where they can be properly managed for their most vital function: building healthy soils.
