Grant is a freelance writer, political analyst, and generally cool dude. Combining his background in political philosophy and development theory, alongside his current work in the digital industry, has given him great insight into evolving human interaction, technical innovation, economic intelligence and migration patterns. He is a dedicated fan of the Bangladesh and Afghanistan cricket teams, a lapsed indie music buff, an amateur linguistics nerd, and due to an extraordinary lack of interest from others, he is quite possibly Australia’s foremost authority on Canadian politics. He is impossible to inconvenience, extremely helpful in any capacity, and always punctual. He has previously lived in London, Montreal and a little town in Kerala called Palakkad, but he currently lives in Melbourne where he is undertaking a Master of International Relations at the University of Melbourne.
So far in his short freelance career his political opinion pieces have been published in The Age, The Guardian, ABC’s The Drum, Crikey, SBS Comment and The Melbourne Review
He currently writes a weekly column for Asia-Pacific international affairs website The Diplomat.
