About Harrison

Hi there! I am Harrison. The first thing you will notice about me is that I am 6'10". Yes I play(ed) basketball, yes the air is cleaner up here. My father and mother were both in entertainment. Lionel Schaen was a tenured professor at USC, Head of Sales at PBS, General Manager at KCAL, President of the Hollywood Raido and Television Society, and so much more. My mother, Jan Jan, was a model, actress, producer, and one of the original Playboy bunnies. My extended family is pretty ridiculous and includes Uncle Hef. In fact, hanging out at the Playboy Mansion my whole life definitely shaped my affinity for the finer things in life.

I have travelled all over the world by hanging out with my parents, modeling, playing basketball. But since moving to San Diego in 2011, I have been focusing on my career. Since moving to America's Finest City, I a have been a product & project manager, a salesperson, a developer, a marketer, a designer, even a touring musician, and more. Needless to say, I have done some shit to put myself in a position to run a company.

In 2014-15, I read a book that changed my life. I had an epiphany and left my job to start my own business. It took a lot of risk, but my gut said it was the right thing to do. So, I took the leap and I am now running a marketing and development agency called Issue Fixers, which is a full service agency catering to funded startups and marketing agencies.

I started the company in 2015 after working in the industry since I was 12 years old. When I first got into coding, I was building apps to help hackers do their dirty work. By the time I was 13, I had started my first business, and began doing web design and development for coaches, referees, parents of players, etc.

When I was 18, I got recruited by all the top schools for basketball and education including USC, Duke, Stanford, Arizona, and Penn. But I chose Princeton, and decided to make the most out of my time there. So, as you'll see on my resume, that I kept very busy and left a legacy behind.

After school, I played basketball until I got hurt. Once I did, I went into sales for several years and truly refined my skills and the craft, and became a master salesman. Once I felt like I was a master of my domain, I went back into the development world to gain additional real-world experience so that I could learn the ins and the outs of an agency.

Long story short, I have a great career so far, and I manage to make time to do amazing things including music production, volunteering, coaching, and going to concerts.
