I’m based in the Washington, DC area. My career has spanned college and university teaching, practicing law, teaching in the Fulbright program, working at a Washington, DC think tank, and career coaching and consulting. My goal as a career coach is to leverage my own experiences, networks, and learning to assist career transitioners, particularly those seeking to make social change.

I teach at the Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution at George Mason University and the School of International Service at American University.
