I am a writer, editor, musician, and new resident of Houston. After attending the University of Texas as an undergraduate, I stayed to work as an editor before moving to beautiful northern New Mexico. Here, I had the privilege of teaching seventh grade, all subjects, at a school on the edge of the Jicarilla Apache reservation. Less than 100 people were currently living in the small mining town where the school stood, and I can't imagine a better context for learning to work closely with students and their families.

Most of my professional work has involved helping people to communicate. I love to teach writing, and I am as comfortable reviewing academic papers as I am teaching junior high and high school students. At the University of Texas, I worked with many ESL authors who, although experts in their field, felt uncomfortable publishing in a second language. It was my job to guide them through grammatical and stylistic changes so that their hard work could be welcomed by an English-speaking audience. My friends think of me as their go-to "writing guy," and I have helped to hone many a successful application essay or personal statement.

I think that we do our best thinking in conversation with others. As a tutor, I love engaging in dialogue with students. Such conversations give students the chance to literally hear themselves work through the material. In my free time, I keep myself busy by writing songs playing music with old friends. I also love to swim, go camping, and cook for large groups of people.
