 Hi! I'm Robert.

As a college consultant and the founder of College Torch, I've built my career around helping students discover their next steps.

I'm an expert in college options and the college admissions process, and I stay knowledgeable about all the changes in the admissions landscape so I can help my students navigate the path to college. 

Helping teenagers find their best-fit colleges requires an understanding of students and an ability to connect with them. I love working with teens, and they enjoy working with me. I get them, I listen to them, and I advocate for them.

When my students press submit, they feel confident knowing they've chosen the right colleges and done everything they could to present their best selves on the applications.

Some areas of special expertise: California admissions (UC and Cal State), need-based and merit financial aid, and LGBTQ+ students.

To work with me directly, you'll need to submit an application with both a parent and student section. I can't work with everyone, and if I'm unable to register you for a counseling program, I will do my best to make an excellent referral to another qualified, ethical college consultant. Apply here!
