Daryl’s own path from Ivy-league lawyer to education-entrepreneur stemmed from following his desire to find work that was both meaningful and practical. This background creates the most significant counseling differentiation between Daryl and other career counselors. Specifically, many clients come to Daryl after having experienced frustration with other career counselors who spoke in generalities about “finding your passion” and “doing what you love” but who could not help craft a practical plan for doing either. Daryl combines his deep expertise in personality profiling tools (career tests) with a real world understanding of the new world of work to help his career counseling clients.
While Daryl is an idealist by nature, his background is grounded in the real world. As an attorney, Daryl worked and served on hiring committees of various private and public organizations. For that reason, he understands how organizations hire. As the CEO of The Learning Consultants, the largest private education consultancy in Connecticut, Daryl is involved in reviewing and hiring applicants on a weekly basis. Most importantly, Daryl has been providing career counseling services for over a decade.
Recently named to Who’s Who in America and author of Motivate Your Son, Daryl speaks on education issues at the local and national level. Daryl graduated magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa and first in his concentration from Georgetown University. He then earned a joint JD-MGA from Penn Law School and Penn’s Fels School. Daryl also earned a prestigious Equal Justice Foundation Fellowship, for which he served at The Brookings Institute, the nation’s top think tank. Daryl lives in Old Saybrook, Connecticut with his wife and three children.
