Elton is the founder and CEO of ILUMIN Education. He graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering from UC Davis and completed his MDiv in Theology from Trinity International University near Chicago, IL. He has a wealth of experience and has worked with teens for almost twenty years, including in recent years being the Lead Consultant for the Bay Area's largest educational consulting firm. He was also selected as the company's Consultant of the Year in 2012.

Elton believes that success in life begins with passion and a plan. Motivated students understand themselves and embrace their true passions. Mature students know that in order to pursue their passion, they need a plan. Elton has consistently and successfully helped students grow in motivation and maturity, core traits sought after by the top colleges.

Elton's other strength is helping students develop their own signature or capstone project. As an entrepreneur himself (having also co-founded Ellie Fun Day and other ventures), he has helped many students start impactful and sustainable businesses, non-profits and independent projects. Projects like these tap into a student's true passion and become the centerpiece of their college application.

Elton is a member of the Western Association for College Admissions Counseling and an associate member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association
