Quinnton is a multi-disciplinary designer & artist living in San Mateo, California with his life partner Ariel Belgrave. He grew up in Maywood, IL and graduated with honors from MIT in 2011. He has a twin brother named Neko Harris, and an older brother named Shaun Wright.
He comes from a rich legacy of artists, musicians, and storytellers, many of whom settled on the west side of Chicago. At age 16, his life seemingly started down a different path, one that had him feeling distant from my roots. However, the Institute taught him to see my trajectory not as a misstep, but as an evolution of the family creed. he learned balance which nurtured the mantra— I am the artist and the technologist, the voice and the hand.
He designs product at Walker and Company Brands which many of you may know as Bevel, which is a movement focused on making health and beauty simple for people that share his heritage.
