Grant Ainsworth (Owner/Founder)

Hey there! My name is Grant Ainsworth and I have lived in Juneau Alaska since I was 5 years old. I am currently pursuing a degree in Finance at the University of Portland. Growing up in Alaska, protecting our environment and the sustainability of resources at hand have always been values instilled in my mind. This mindset as well as taking a life-changing environmental science course ultimately inspired me to found Branching Threads my sophomore year of college.
