Storyteller, academic matchmaker (college counselor)






I spend my autumns coaching self-reflection and essay-writing, my winters modeling and preaching patience and perspective, my springs getting to know a new group of students as I help them to get to know themselves, and my summers thinking deeply about each of my rising seniors in turn as I write letters in support of their candidacy for university admission. I am a tech-evangelist, and consider Twitter a vital tool for my own learning journey. I am never happier than when I'm deep in a learning conversation.
