With an extensive education from Brown University and Harvard University, Harper has gone on to work in some of the largest law firms, act in hit TV shows and movies, launch popular hotels and restaurants, and reach out to young people by writing the book Letters to a Young Brother: MANifest Your Destiny, which was recently re-released in April 2007 as a hardcover edition.

With parents who were both successful physicians, Harper was always encouraged to excel in school and other intellectual pursuits. Once he completed his undergraduate work at Brown University in 1988, graduating magna cum laude and as valedictorian, Harper went on to Harvard University. Although he was also accepted to Yale University, he chose to attend Harvard because of its selection of performance opportunities throughout Boston. It was there that he earned his J.D. as well as his M.A. in Public Administration.

When Harper entered graduate school, he had no specific long-term career plans lined up. Instead, he approached school as an "exploration" of different fields, which would eventually guide him to his destined career path.

"That's what law school was for me: exploration," he said. "That's what I think all school is for us."
