Harvey graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Advertising.
He started his career writing commercials for radio station WPRO AM & FM, in Providence, RI. He found that writing eight creative commercials per day was seven too many.
For most of the 27 years that followed, Harvey held a variety of sales, marketing and management positions at radio and TV stations in Los Angeles, Hilton Head, SC and New Haven, CT.
For the last 10 years, Harvey has been co-owner and Creative Director of a full-service advertising agency based in Woodbridge, CT.
