He has also been a lead college admissions essay specialist, helping college-bound students produce memorable essays that stand out and give them a competitive edge.

Educational Philosophy:

"I find that teaching works best when the instructor is as interested in and energetic about the material as he would like his students to be. Classrooms should be places where students are invigorated by the experiences they have while learning."


Interesting Fact:

During his free time, he writes poetry and even has a short poetry book published, titled First Man on Mars.
