Raleigh Haire is always looking towards the future and is inspired by its possibilities.
Starting as a pre-med major for two years at UK, Raleigh realized that his passion for automotive design should not just be a hobby. He found and researched DAAP and got excited about the co-op program. Then when he witnessed the transportation studio he knew that's where he belonged.
Throughout his 5 years at DAAP Raleigh has interned at Crown Equipment in New Bremen, Ohio, Sea Ray in Merritt Island, Florida, JCI Automotive Interiors in Holland, Michigan, and most recently at Audi / Volkswagen's satellite studio in Los Angeles, California and Ford's advanced interior studio in Dearborn, Michigan. At these internships he gained considerable experience in working alongside other designers and engineers to create new and innovative products, and also had a blast exploring the country!
After graduation he plans to continue growing as a designer and artist wherever the industry takes him.
