He created award-winning campaigns for a variety of clients including Kodak, Goodyear, Rockwell, Lockheed, Honda and Western Airlines.

As a Christian, Harlan was inspired one day to create a complete series of radio dramas called L.I.G.H.T. (Living in God’s Hands Today). Since Harlan was in the voice over business, he knew all the top performers, sound engineers and technicians and quickly realized his dream. He wrote and produced 38 original radio dramas that were broadcast on Christian Radio Stations across the country, eventually winning an “Angel Award” for excellence in Christian broadcasting. These remarkable true-life stories of the miraculous presence of God in our lives are being developed as an inspirational new television series.
