Born and raised in North Texas, Grady was always passionate about art and motor-sports. Throughout school he was involved in a variety of art classes, and as a teenager he served as a mechanic on a SCCA Formula Ford race team.
Grady sought a degree in aerospace engineering, focusing on a career as an aerodynamacist. But, he soon found that crunching numbers was not something he wanted to base a career on. Discovering the field of Industrial Design in 2004, Grady realized he could put his technical and artistic skills to good use. He decided to continue his education and moved to Golden, Colorado in 2005. He graduated in March of 2008, with a B.A. in Industrial Design.

Dustin Griffith grew up in Northwest Arkansas. The son of a mechanic, and avid motorcyclist, Dustin started riding and maintaining motorcycles at an early age. By 13, Dustin was racing local hare scrambles and eventually progressed to motocross and dirt track racing.
After high school Dustin chose mechanical engineering as his desired field. He soon realized that the technicalities of engineering were far less interesting than he had expected, and began searching for a more creative opportunity. He came across Industrial Design, and in 2005 moved to Denver Colorado to pursue his B.A. He graduated in March of 2008.
