Meet the Editor – Harrison Gunn

Harrison Gunn is an Associate in Goodwin’s Boston office.

BMW: WHEN YOU WERE 8, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?

Harrison: I wanted to be an architectural landscaper. My parents always had some yardwork for me to do and I took a liking to the aesthetic design experience related to the placement of plants within the garden. I also enjoyed the responsibility that came along with nurturing the plants, and the ultimate reward that comes as they bloom in the spring. I still enjoy horticulture and watch after my many houseplants.

BMW: IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER WITH ANY PROMINENT FIGURE (WORLD LEADERS, CELEBRITIES, DEAD OR ALIVE), WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

Harrison: Elon Musk. He is incredibly smart and unapologetically himself. He has not let his success change his moral values and I find him hilarious. It would also be interesting to learn about the most valuable car company, interplanetary travel, mindreading, dogecoin, and whatever else he has up his sleeves.

BMW: WHAT SPURRED YOUR INTEREST IN LIFE SCIENCES?

Harrison: I was attracted to life sciences work because it is one of the most cutting-edge areas of innovation. It excites me to learn about the development process behind new technologies that will eventually become prevalent in society. Life sciences is particularly interesting because it has the potential to improve or even save lives. I also enjoy learning about biosimilars and how our regulatory systems attempt to balance innovation with expanded access in the healthcare field.
