Deciding upon the RSAMD as his place of study for the next three years chossing the design strand and then chosing to further specialise in lighting Design.
Lighting Design has been a topic Grant has been interested for several ears now and he started his interest for the industry at school and amateur dramatics. Having light these types of shows for some time he mad contacts and links to other, more challenging ventures and has started to develop his portfolio into a more professional path. Studying at the RSAMD, Grant is hoping to developing his lighting design skills to the best level possibly but also gain a more detailed knowledge of other areas of theatre and the industry in general.
Outside of theatre Grant works at River Island Clothing and enjoys making use of his 30% discount!

They range from relaxed and creative environment for designing to a professional, polite and focused environment for production elements.
