Social Media Bodyguard For College Admissions

Watch Intro Video

Welcome to the Social Media Bodyguard For College Admissions! Colleges are rejecting applicants and revoking offers based on Internet search history, social media politics, & whom applicants are following online. This course was designed to ensure that students don't have to worry about their digital foot print ruining their college & employment opportunities.  

For years, I have defended students accused of unpopular social media behavior and advocated for state laws that ban colleges from being able to request access to their personal digital lives. Many colleges, including Harvard, are secretly tracking the Internet search history of applicants and trying to uncover their Finsta accounts.  

Buying this course will protect college applicants and their families from having to go through the agonizing experience of having an offer and/or scholarship revoked based upon one Tweet or visit to a political, religious, or health focused web site. 

We stand by this Course 100% and if you buy this course and have a college admissions offer or scholarship revoked due to your digital foot print we will refund your purchase. You can reach us at:

We ensure that your digital activities including your texts, emails, social media posts, your Internet search history, etc. do not ruin your personal and professional life.   

While in law school, I started my professional career at the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA)  where I assisted in defending the rights of professional football players. One day, the late great Oakland Raider Hall of Fame Executive Director Gene Upshaw asked me what NFL players were doing online. Since then I have worked on technology related issues. 

I have also worked for JPMorgan Chase, an entertainment start-up, and now I own and operate a law and consulting practice in the Bethesda, MD which is a suburb of Washington, DC.  Through my personalized services, online courses, and pro bono social media privacy and free speech advocacy, I can proudly claim that I have protected the personal social media lives of more people than anyone else in the United States. 

My insight regarding social media, privacy, technology, and sports issues is also regularly requested by media organizations all over the world. Here is a link to some of my media opportunities.  If you have any suggestions on changes to my courses or questions feel free to contact me at or at
