Grant started his first events business at 19 years old. He realised that ‘winging it’ was no longer an option when these shows started to sell out, so he completed a Bachelor of Arts in Arts Management at the WA Academy of Performing Arts. Upon graduating, Grant was snapped up by one of Australia’s leading commercial theatre producers. Relocating to Sydney, he managed marketing for touring musical theatre productions in Australia, New Zealand and London’s West End.
Back in Perth, Grant became a respected name in the media and events industries through his highly regarded PR and events agency, Muse Bureau, which he founded in 2009. His career highlights include working as Hugh Jackman’s publicist when he was in Perth to launch his foundation, as well as producing high-end launch events for Prada, LVMH, Rolex, H&M, Kartell, TAG Heuer and QT Hotels. Two of his greatest achievements are producing award-winning gala events ART BALL for the Art Gallery of Western Australia, and ALTITUDE for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, which he designed and delivered for many years.
In 2016 Grant won the People’s Choice Award at the Business News 40 Under 40 Awards, which recognises excellence among WA’s young business professionals. The same year he was named in The West Australian’s ‘100 Most Influential West Australian’s’ list, which amuses him to no end.
Grant is currently completing a Diploma of Industrial Design and sits on the board of architecture festival, Open House Perth. He is an experienced fashion runway producer and was also the first reviewer from WA to write for luxury hotel group, Mr & Mrs Smith. He was recently honoured with Life Membership to ARTRAGE for his ongoing contribution to Fringe World Perth, which he has worked on since its inception.
Grant is passionate about art and design, practising both in his spare time with hopes of having his own design studio someday.POSTED ON 07/12/2022
