Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is a lot like sales – it is a transfer of enthusiasm.  If I can get you as interested in a topic as I am, you will likely learn the information, tell others about it, and apply it to your life.

Every day there is a learning opportunity if one just pays attention.

Research/Academic Interests

Examining current marketing techniques and if they are successful in changing buyer behavior.  Determining if socially responsible packaging is an element in a buying decision.
