WD has always had a passion for movies and a technical mind.
After a few music videos and doing lighting for two years, he decided he was, in fact, a grip.
When he was little, his technical side would take things apart and rebuild them. Thomas Wahl saw potential in WD and trained him in grips. WD says Thomas showed him the finesse, art and structure of being a grip and inspired him to strive to be the best.
Grips became his natural harmony and made him focused.
Grips are his adult playground and he has the freedom to make it work in his own way. This is his lifestyle. He speaks, lives and breathes grips.
