Get to know our DIY Pros!
Come meet the people responsible for a lot of what goes on behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera. You’ll recognize some faces from our inventory of how-to videos, and you might recognize some voices from over-the-phone project and sewing machine assistance. Learn more about our trade show crew and their DIY backgrounds.
We send most of our crew to the Annapolis Sailboat Show, but you might see these faces at other trade shows as well.
Son of founders Jim and Connie Grant, and brother of Sailrite owner Matt Grant, Eric is our resident DIY expert and project guy. You know him from our popular how-to videos hosted on the Sailrite DIY YouTube channel. He may have even answered the phone or corresponded with you via email regarding your product or project questions. Eric is always eager to share his advice and expertise on all things DIY.
You might think that since Eric spends most of his time prototyping projects and then filming them he doesn't have time to DIY at home. You'd be wrong! Eric loves working on projects at home and outfitting his house with sun shades, grill covers, custom upholstery and more.
Bill joined the Sailrite team in 2017. He’s an invaluable member of the customer support staff and occasionally lends a hand in project videos. He chats and emails with customers, helping them find the right tools and materials for their projects.
Bill started sailing over 50 years ago as a young kid on a sunfish dinghy in a local junior sailing program. In his personal time, Bill is part of a teaching program that introduces young sailors to the sport in hopes of sparking a lifelong interest in sailing. This means, in addition to his participation in a local racing club, he’s lucky enough to get on the water at least once a week.
Daniel is a member of the Sailrite customer support staff and sales team. He is also the newest crew member to join the trade show team. You’ll find him at every trade show. He’s looking forward to learning the ropes, speaking to customers and getting in on the action! Bring him your questions, your suggestions for new products or projects we should tackle, and how we can better serve you in the DIY market. He wants to hear from you!
Daniel is an avid cosplayer. He has recently been working with Sailrite leather sides and leather tools to up the production value of his costumes. In fact, you might see him in a leather crafting DIY video or two.
