Grant’s passion is social and environmental regeneration in the built and natural environments. His background includes degrees in business, engineering and law. Grant spent four years in management consulting at Bain & Company in Sydney, Johannesburg and Stockholm, before turning to property development.
In 2015 he founded Northstar Development, which focuses on elevating the importance of people and the environment when building and developing property. Going hand in hand with this is an innovative way of building energy efficient homes, as well as the distribution of a pioneering rainwater filtration device across the African continent.
Grant has enjoyed being in the ocean for as long as he can remember. Diving since he was 14, his long-held desire to make a contribution to our oceans led to him co-founding the Western Australian Ocean Foundation, of which he is Chairperson. WAOF’s mission is to facilitate the continuous improvement in the health and ethical use of Western Australia’s ocean through collaboration, technology, education, and research.
