Drew Grier

Current Vocation: Contract Specialist at UGA
Having been born and raised in Ft. Gaines, GA (est. population of 1,107 as of the 2010 Census), I filled much of my adolescent downtime with movies from the local video store, Picture Perfect Video. I arrived in Athens, GA in 2003, continuing my movie education with Vision Video's three locations, as well as accompanying late fees. I graduated the University of Georgia in 2008, at which point I moved to Seoul, Korea for a year to teach English. With a pit stop of a few years in Dothan, AL, I returned to Athens to complete my Master's Degree in Environmental Science. I currently work for Innovation Gateway, an arm of UGA's Office of Research, working with NDAs and Material Transfer Agreements. In addition to my borderline unhealthy love of movies, I'm also a long suffering fan of the Bulldogs, Braves, and the Jacksonville Jaguars (long story).
