I graduated from Harvard University summa cum laude and then completed my master’s degree at the University of Michigan and the postgraduate diploma program at the University for Music and Performing Arts, Vienna. I have helped dozens of students gain acceptance to their top-choice schools including Harvard, MIT, UC Berkeley, Northwestern, Johns Hopkins, the University of Michigan, and Georgia Tech. I have also advised and mentored thousands more through my live streams. In addition to my work in college consulting, I am a professional conductor and a multi-instrumentalist. I currently serve as Music Director of both the Apollo Ensemble of Boston and Festival Theater Hudson and as a cover conductor with the Minnesota Orchestra, the Albany Symphony, and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. I have led symphonic concerts and operatic productions throughout the United States and in Europe.
