About my research:

My research now currently deals with effective teaching techniques for various types of classes.  I have also published research in the areas of sustainability and health.

My advice to students:

Be persistent in your work, and find ways to effectively work with others.  Business jobs are much more collaborative than in years past.  Being able to work in team environments will become increasingly important.

What I enjoy most about teaching:

I enjoy the process of challenging and supporting students.  There is a fine balance needed to get students to higher levels of thinking.  I enjoy following in the path of teachers I've had who have made a difference.

About me:

I enjoy spending time in nature, and eating and exercising in natural/paleolithic ways.
