In hiring a college counselor for my son, my goals basically consisted of keeping him on track, and making sure he met all the deadlines and didn’t have too many typos on his essays. Those goals were achieved of course, but so was a lot more. Hans definitely took it to the next level! Hans has inspired Marco to pursue his interests more deeply, to challenge himself, and to want to become a better person. I can’t say enough about the positive impact he has had on my son and I will be forever grateful. Hans is truly an outstanding person and a gifted college counselor.

Having the guidance and direction of Hans during the process of assisting our daughter through the college selection and application process has been truly invaluable. To begin with, Hans’ broad-based experience as an administrator at some of the country’s top arts programs allows him to provide highly relevant and nuanced insight into how these institutions evaluate applicants and the character, strengths, and weaknesses that each program is typically known for. As an artist and educator, Hans was able to interact with our daughter on a very personal and even emotional level to understand where she was in her artistic development, offer directions for her to follow in order to further that development, and help her set short and long term goals designed to result in valuable portfolio production and presentation in the application format. I cannot overstate how important Hans’ was in helping us feel like we had a handle on the process and that our daughter was being empowered to make the best decisions for herself.
