College Advisor

Dana has dedicated his career as an educator to mentoring students in self-expression and self-actualization, harnessing their talents so that they can reach their full potential. In addition to evaluating applications in Princeton’s Office of Undergraduate Admission, he has spent many years as an Admissions Consultant, helping students maximize their chances of gaining admission to selective colleges in the U.S., the UK, and Canada.

Key to this success is Dana’s comprehensive experience as an educator, which informs his holistic approach to college advising. He was an English teacher at Horace Mann, where he advocated for his students in their college recommendations, assisted seniors with college essays, and served as academic adviser to students in grades 9 through 12. He taught English and creative writing at various colleges; worked as a writing tutor; and published his own articles, short stories, and poems. These experiences informed his expertise in empowering students to produce applications that support their strategic positioning and reveal compelling personal essays that embed themselves in an Admissions Officer’s mind.

Among the other characteristics that define Dana’s holistic approach to admissions consulting is his emphasis on helping students develop their extracurricular profiles. He thoughtfully supports students in discovering and exploring their passions, an endeavor that can help them realize their full potential as they accrue notable expertise in academic disciplines, activism, and community service. By nurturing their personal and intellectual growth, Dana’s students find that they have what it takes to stand out in a selective applicant pool–and to hit the ground running once they enroll in the college of their choice.
