According to the bio on his website: "After receiving a B.A. from Beloit College and an MFA in Creative Writing from USC, Haris soon realized he had no discernible skills with which to make a living. This despite being a finalist in the American Theater Festival for his one act play, Armageddon. Advertising beckoned.
After several years writing and producing award winning radio and television commercials, Haris sold his first screenplay, Save the Dog, which was later produced as a Disney Sunday Night movie.
His play, Dada was produced at The American Stage, The Nebraska Rep, and the La Jolla Playhouse. Nobody Lives Forever has been performed at The John Harmon Theater and The Player’s Club in New York City.
His original screenplay, A Saintly Switch, was produced by Disney. It was directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starred David Alan Grier and Viveca Fox.
Haris has also written scripts for Universal, Columbia, Twentieth Century Fox, and Paramount.
In 2005, Haris broke into the world of game narrative when he wrote the script for Dungeons and Dragons: Dragonshard, developed by Liquid Entertainment and published by Atari. He wrote a game for the Kingdom Hearts franchise for Disney and Square Enix that same year."
