Originally from Fairfield, CT, Harlan has always possessed a passion for creativity and entrepreneurship. Harlan graduated from The School of Visual Arts with a BFA in toy design and minors in 3D graphic design and advertising. As a student, Harlan’s work was featured in an exhibit at the Whitney Museum, The Art Director’s club and in a number of Soho galleries. After graduation, Harlan was involved in a number of interactive art exhibits including The Turn of a Century, Bedtime Rituals and the Yugo Next worldwide tour. He then worked as a scenic artist on various motion picture films and television productions.
Over the next four years Harlan continued his career on the road, serving as a production properties supervisor for several traveling productions. During this time, Harlan started his first production company, Prism Production Services. At Prism Harlan received his first credit as a Special Effects Designer for Dance of the Vampires on Broadway. Harlan then made the decision to restructure management at his production company, diversify his business interests and begin his career in financial services. Now called PropNSpoon, and still owned by Harlan, the production company continues to produce and provide props, special effects, furniture and decor for feature movies, broadway shows, television, special events and much of the rest of the entertainment industry. Some of the more notable productions include: Saturday Night Live, Blue Bloods, A Beautiful Mind, The Manchurian Candidate, Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, Hairspray, The Producers, and Jersey Boys.
Today, Harlan applies his extreme levels of creativity and over a decade of conversion experience to serve our advisors as a transition specialist and financial services marketing expert. You can often find him working one on one with our advisors to help them better serve their clients and grow their advisory practices.
When he isn’t helping Kingsview Advisors grow their businesses or working on a Broadway show, Harlan enjoys cooking with his daughter Izzi.
