Through action and leadership Grier has dedicated himself to his community, his state and his country. He attended the North Carolina public schools and paid much of his way through Davidson College with an ROTC scholarship. He then graduated from the University of North Carolina School of Law.

Grier went on to use his degree in the service of small businesses and non-profits. He also married fellow North Carolina native Louise Porter Martin and became the proud father of a daughter, Sara Louise.

After our country was attacked on September 11, 2001 Grier volunteered for active duty, serving at Ft. Bragg and in the war in Afghanistan in 2002-2003. After two years of active duty, Grier once again answered the call to public service and was first elected to the North Carolina House of Representatives in 2004.

Beyond the legislature Grier has served on the boards of the NC Center for Voter Education, Preservation North Carolina, and the Afro-American Cultural Center (now The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African- American Arts + Culture). He is also a former Sunday school teacher at White Memorial Presbyterian Church. He currently serves in the Army Reserve. He, Louise, and Sara have two cats and a dog.
