Bio: Grant Sanders

Grant Sanders began his career in Boston working for a small industrial ad agency, and then, later as a principal of LS&S Advertising. Between then and now he has been a much sought-after free-agent creative fixer, an art director, a copywriter, and a VP Creative Director at Mintz + Hoke Advertising in Avon, CT.

At Mintz + Hoke, he was the creative lead and a vital contributor to strategy on a range of accounts: GE Capital, OTIS Elevator, Pratt & Whitney, Connecticut DOT, CTfastrak, The Hartford Line Rail service,, Fidelco Guide Dogs, The Connecticut Forum, Hartford Steam Boiler, Medtronic, Deloitte, Leonardo DRS, Antares Capital, Connecticut Public, Aetna, The Hartford Yard Goats, and dozens of other brands.

He did all of this while commuting 5-1/2 hours each way to and from his home on Nantucket Island off the coast of Massachusetts.

He moved back to the island full time and founded SAND in 2019 to feed his belief that helping others get where they need to go is a wholly worthy endeavor.
