Brian has over 17 years of college admissions advising and counseling, both as a private advisor and as a school counselor is some of the area’s most academically competitive public high schools.  Brian works effectively with both parents and clients and has a broad range of admissions work, from recruited athletes to students seeking merit aid and scholarship considerations.

In His Own Words:

My approach to college counseling:

“’College is not a prize to be won, but a match to be made.’  I use this quote and mantra as my approach in helping individuals find a college or university that meets their academic and professional goals – and on the personal side – what college environment will help foster their growth while getting the most out of their college experience.”

What I love most about the college process:

“I feel so fortunate because I truly love what I do!  It is exciting to work with – and see – clients navigate the college process from beginning to end, having all their hard-work pay off as they finalize their college list and eventually select that one school by May 1st.  Having the opportunity to be with them on this journey and seeing the success (and their happiness) at the end of the process is truly rewarding!”

How I enjoy spending my free time:

“Although I relish my work and profession, I do enjoy my free time!  I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, both teenagers, attending their athletics events and exploring New England eateries.  I am an avid golfer so you’ll find me playing at a local course over the summer and weekends.  I am a huge music person, attending local shows and exploring avenues to hear new music.  I am also a runner, the town I live in has some great trails, quaint roads and a rail-trail system.”
