Harrison Slater Van Pelt

Human Experience Design

Harrison grew up surrounded by arts and creativity. With a father who worked every creative profession imaginable, to grandparents who traveled the world on photography assignments, and a mother who designed and coordinated world-class events, his upbringing provided exposure to the most profound and diverse forms of artistic expression. Weekly excursions to La Paz and volunteer trips to Madagascar further solidified his passions towards art and philanthropy. These experiences nurtured a desire to help capture and share the beauty of the world while reciprocating love onto those less fortunate.
