He studied liberal arts at George Washington University and surveying at Vermont Technical College. He is licensed in Vermont and New York. After interning at the Land Records Office of the University of Vermont he founded the private practice of A.W.

He conducted land record research and wrote boundary descriptions for lands acquired by the Green Mountain and Finger Lakes National Forests. Later he became director of surveys at Knight Consulting Engineers, Inc. where he continued his focus on boundary surveys.

In 2001 Terry founded Harris Surveying & Land Dispute Resolution (now Harris Surveying & Land Dispute Evaluation) to concentrate on land disputes of all types. He has been retained by landowners, municipalities, attorneys, insurers and others to determine the location of land boundaries or the record status and location of public highways, private rights of way or other easements. He has been retained as an expert witness on numerous occasions when a dispute is litigated.

Terry has taught surveying at the University of Vermont and has presented boundary surveying topics at numerous legal seminars. He served on the Vermont Board of Land Surveyors from 2001 through 2010 and as Chairman from 2002 to 2006. He is also a member of the Vermont Society of Land Surveyors.
