Sean Harris

I have an enthusiastic personality with talent and skill to strengthen projects in any industry.

I received a Bachelors of Architecture with a minor in Graphic Design from Woodbury University. As a student, I experimented in everything from Architecture and Urban Planning to packaging and motion graphics. I had the opportunity to enrich my studies abroad in Peru, Berlin, Rome, Nanjing, and Beijing. As a professional I have worked for small and large architecture firms doing just about everything within the architectural process. I have also had the opportunity to take a furniture design start-up company from concept to mass production, doing everything from R+D to marketing and production.

My experiences have allowed me to be extremely versatile in everything I do. I have dabbled in many industries and have an appetite for every aspect of design. Being self-motivated and meticulous has built a reputation of reliability and consistency. My verbal & graphic communication skills create powerful results which have established successful relationships throughout my profession.
