E. Harris considers himself an information conduit rather than an instructor. His experience in information sharing includes fatherhood, brotherhood, HVAC instructor at a technical college, and service manager for a facility management firm. His goal with every course is to make sure the participant feels better about himself/herself at the end of the course in addition to learning the core subject at hand. Through transparency and integrity, he hopes to reach just one person with some information that may change that person's life.
