I graduated from Harvard University summa cum laude and then completed my master’s degree at the University of Michigan. I have helped dozens of students gain acceptance to their top-choice schools including Harvard, MIT, Emory, USC, Tufts, 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 the music director of the Apollo Ensemble of Boston and Festival Theater Hudson and as a cover conductor with the Albany Symphony, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Minnesota Orchestra. I have led symphonic concerts and operatic productions throughout the United States and in Europe.
