From Humble Beginnings to Academic Excellence

Born in Michigan, I was raised by my father and a physically disabled mother, who was severely injured by a drunk driver who hit my family's Buick at 90 miles per hour. Having witnessed the near death of my mother and my father, I elected to live an "accelerated" life. I was homeschooled as a child because of my severe dyslexia and unconventional mind; this experience led me to begin college at age 12. I completed my undergraduate A.B. degree from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with Highest Distinction, Phi Beta Kappa, a 4.00 GPA (I was a James B. Angell Scholar and I graduated at the top of my class out of 4,012 students).

Oxbridge and the Ivy League

Having strong interdisciplinary interests, I have used my youth to complete graduate degrees at Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, Brandeis, and Skidmore (I have graduate degrees in areas ranging from the Politics of Education to Real Estate Development). I truly love learning and I am one of the most educated persons in the world. I debated for three years at the Oxford Union, and I have won the Princeton University Adlai Stevenson Memorial Public Speaking Tournament. I completed my doctorate at Harvard University.

Award Winning Pedagogy

For over the past half decade, I have eagerly taught in diverse college settings. I have lectured in a number of social science disciplines and interdisciplinary subjects; teaching at Boston College, Boston University, the University of Massachusetts, Northeastern University, Suffolk University, and the College of William & Mary. As a graduate student, I held teaching responsibilities at Harvard, Dartmouth, Brown, Columbia, Barnard, Brandeis, and Stanford. As a Teaching Fellow at Harvard, I won the Derek Bok award for teaching excellence. Regardless of venue, my pedagogy encourages students to develop critical and creative problem solving skills.

Academic Service

While at the University of Pennsylvania, I served as the Associate Master of Gregory College House. Before then, I also served as an Associate Fellow at Rodin College House and an Associate Fellow at Hamilton College House at the University of Pennsylvania. At Harvard, I was a non-residential tutor at Quincy House and Adams House.

With regard to issues of ethics and social justice, I have been an outspoken advocate of socially responsible investment and I have served on both the Advisory Committee on Shareholder Responsibility at Harvard and the Advisory Committee on Corporate Responsibility in Investing at Brown University.
