Henry finished his Master of Science in Design Theory and Pedagogy at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, focusing on the notion of comedy in architecture and exploring how comedy can be deployed in architectural designs without being cliché.

He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture.
Before he joined the Ph.D. program at UCLA, Henry worked in 2016 under Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich as a designer for various projects at P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, an architectural firm based in Los Angeles.
