Celebrating Grant Imahara

Grant Masaru Imahara was born October 23, 1970 in Los Angeles, CA. He grew up in Southern California and was raised by his mother, Carolyn Imahara. As a child, he demonstrated profound curiosity in how things were made, and loved to spend hours building with Lego blocks. By age five, Carolyn recalls, Grant’s grandmother gave him a little screwdriver, “So that was the end of any complete toys, he took everything apart.” Grant first knew he wanted to be a roboticist after his mom took him to see Star Wars in 1977. He was enthralled with the heroic characters R2-D2 and C-3P0, and his attraction to the droids would prove to be an ironic foreshadowing of Grant’s destiny.

Grant would have been 50 this year.
