Grayson Wise was born and raised in Powell, Ohio. He graduated from Duke University with a degree in Computer Science, but quickly turned his attention to graphic design and videography after school. Through his work running a community gym with his brother, and as a freelancer, he honed a wide array of skills for creating digital content. Realizing he was perpetually stressed out by the state of the world, he decided he should use those skills to improve it. He comes to DSI in the hopes of exploring his passion for storytelling in a way that can illuminate important issues and connect with a wide audience.
