My main area of expertise is Sports Marketing. I have worked in this area and the collegiate sports world for about 10 years.

I use many teaching formats including lecture, class interactions, and group work. Courses I teach most often are: Marketing, Marketing Strategy, Sports Culture, Managing Sports Organizations, and Organizational Behavior.

In my spare time, I coach volleyball and still attempt to play the sport. Also, I am an instructor for the Red Cross teaching CPR, First Aid, Lifeguard Training, and managing the Red Cross Learn to Swim Program in Jacksonville, IL.
