I'm a lifelong student who, after many years of higher education, now find a career in guiding others on their educational, vocational, and personal trajectory. I like to live - from reading Vonnegut novels to hiking the alps to practicing French in Montreal to playing beach volleyball in Huntington Beach to watching March Madness on four TVs at once to going fishing in remote parts of Canada. I also like to write, and dabble with creative non-fiction and a bit of fiction. I married my best friend a couple years back, and we have two beautiful little girls. Life is good!
