Interactive Telecommunications Program @ New York University

  • About

My name is Nick Grant and I am currently attending the Interactive Telecommunications Program at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts. The mission of ITP “is to explore the imaginative use of communications technologies — how they might augment, improve, and bring delight and art into people’s lives.” I recently graduated from The George Washington University where I majored in political science and minored in English and journalism.

During my undergraduate studies, I focused on political reporting, media studies, creative writing, and theatre. I am both an analytical and imaginative thinker. I pride myself as a dynamic storyteller who blends pragmatic problem-solving with innovative brainstorming in order to deliver the most ideal experiences for my audience.

My passion lies in the exciting intersection of experiential design and extended reality. I am fascinated by the methods in which emerging media technology may produce strong positive changes on a personal level. During the two-year program, I post my unique coursework that ranges from physical computing and creative coding to user experience design and virtual reality. Please check back for more content!

My main interests:

  • Screen-based immersive media
  • Virtual reality platforms (360° and true VR)
  • Augmented reality platforms (creative execution in addition to UI and UX design)
  • Sculptural and digital installation design
