I'm Grant - nice to meet you! I grew up in the Bay Area, before moving to Los Angeles to study film at the University of Southern California, a program that is ranked #1 in the world. Since then, I have worked throughout the entertainment industry, for companies like Universal Studios, Amazon, USA Network, and more. My experience in screenwriting, filmmaking, editing and video production is sure to take my students' work to the next level.

If you are interested in editing, I am an expert in Adobe Premiere Pro and Davinci Resolve, both industry-standard programs. I have taught photography and filmmaking for the past 12 years. I am thrilled to teach the storytelling skills, visual artistry, and technical knowledge that I learned at USC, while helping each of my students foster their own style and understanding.

I have been working as a screenwriter in Hollywood for the past 4 years. Most recently, I created and led a screenwriting workshop for students at 826 Valencia, the acclaimed non-profit devoted to teaching students creative and expository writing skills.

While at USC, I took two years of film analysis, followed by two years of courses in directing, video editing, sound design, and more! I have written and produced countless films, while earning income as a freelance video editor for a variety of awesome companies.

Whether you are interested in film analysis, or you just want to make your own films, I am here to guide you through the sometimes daunting process of producing your own visual stories. Let's make some movie magic!
