Guided by the motto “learn continuously, live generatively” I am a teacher, researcher, and trainer with more than 25 years of experience writing, speaking, and  consulting.

As a lecturer of marketing in the Wall College of Business at Coastal Carolina University, I develop courses for delivery in person, via blended learning, and online. I also inspire innovation mindsets in underrepresented adolescents as the director of the university’s Each One Teach One Entrepreneurship Institute. Additionally, I facilitate corporate training for entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 employees, and government officials.

A charismatic communicator, I delivered two TEDx talks: “Moving Forward from Failure,” presents my perspective on pivoting over obstacles, and “Inspiring Innovation Mindsets in Underrepresented Adolescents,” which shares the strategy and success of Each One Teach One. You can also find me acting in student films, appearing on podcasts, performing as a voice over artist, or competing on game shows.

Intersecting humanity, industry, and technology, my research interests include digital marketing, educational technology, entrepreneurship education, the sharing economy, and sports marketing. My written work appears in journal articles, trade publications, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings along with blogs, magazines, and newspapers.

As a consultant, I create academic curriculum and corporate training materials in addition to developing marketing materials and providing expert witness testimony.

A lifelong learner, I hold a BA in English from the University of California at Santa Barbara and an MBA from Woodbury University in addition to a certificate in innovation and entrepreneurship from Stanford University.

When asked why teaching is my tenure I explain, “education empowers me to influence individuals and impact organizations while improving myself in the process.”
