I have worked in administrative and academic roles in higher education for over 25 years, mostly at Harvard University. For 12 years, I served as an admissions director at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education. I have been an assistant professor, researcher, and academic advisor to undergrads, and have many years’ expertise working with international recruitment and selective admissions in highly competitive institutions. As an instructor, I’ve lectured on college access, global education, and leadership across the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
I completed my master’s and doctoral degrees in Education at Harvard. I spent the 2012-2013 academic year as a visiting scholar at ACS International Schools in London, England. Each spring I teach at the Burgandy School of Business Excellence in Pedagogy program in Dijon, France, as a visiting faculty member. At Harvard, I serve as an academic advisor at Lowell House, one of Harvard’s undergraduate residential communities, where I have advised hundreds of Harvard students over the years.
My passion is working with students–graduate, undergraduate, and high school students–to ensure good choices as they consider college or graduate/professional school. I also greatly enjoy helping international students studying in the USA, as I bring many years’ experience in international admissions.
When not involved in education, I am a passionate international soccer fan (and former player), and father to three great kids, one of whom just completed applying to college herself (and thrived!).
