I am a writer, journalist and professor. I also have extensive experience working with students of all ages as well as professional staff in large government, corporate and non-profit organizations. These include corporations, hospitals, government agencies and top officials in them. My goal for all of and myself has been: Let's Do Our Personal Best to Get Our Best Results.
This doesn't mean a drill-sergeant approach to improving your writing, but more so a personal style of helping achieve your personal goals by alleviating your fears and frustrations while replacing them with confidence and a plan for yourself.

Graduate Degree: Harvard University - Master of Arts, Public Administration
For fun, I like to kayak, surf, paddleboard, bicycle, golf, hike and collect antiques. I like spontaneous things, too. I could also add the ambiance of trekking through Boston or New York streets, gaping at city life, taking in so much of the hurriedness that touches nearly every part of city living. Checkout lines, museum or theater ticket offices, subway platforms, they all seem to have a coda of rush. The inviting counterpoint is dinner and nice conversation with friends.
