My Story


After majoring in History and playing linebacker at Princeton University, I navigated the business world as a project manager and a software entrepreneur before deciding to return to my first love: writing, and helping others to develop skill and confidence as they write.

Two published novels and years spent writing professionally for a variety of clients have given me deep experience in the craft. For the past four years, I have shared that experience with high school students as they prepared their college application essays.

Using a methodology that combines the best practices of independent education counselors as well the techniques that helped me to succeed as a writer, I have enabled a wide variety of students to achieve excellence in their own writing. 

As a father of two teenagers, I bring an easy rapport to my work with students. More than anything, I believe my ability to listen with empathy and draw both confidence and candor from young people sets me apart from most counselors.
