Grant Corley is a designer and web developer in Baltimore, MD.
When Grant is not designing or 'developing' stuff, he is usually either drinking a cup of coffee (see diagram), volunteering for something or other, or washing his dishes. When you do not own a dishwasher, washing your dishes is how you spend pretty much all of your free time.
