Award-winning business faculty and mentor to tomorrow's leaders. Senior VP and International Business Development Executive.

My prior corporate professional experience has led me to view marketing as the most important business discipline to master in today’s dynamic global economy. Marketing’s breadth and depth impact every facet and business decision both tactical and strategic. It’s a fun and rewarding subject to bring alive for students at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

My passion for teaching also comes from the positive influence of my parents' and wife’s careers in public education. Together these influences and opportunities created a path and desire to enter the higher education field as the Marketing Academy Director for the FT MBA program at The University of Iowa in late 2011.

Subsequently, I have assumed various roles including Director of the Business Solutions Center, a well-regarded experiential MBA level strategic consulting course; and now as a full-time Marketing Lecturer, Marketing Analytics Track Director and AMA faculty advisor.
