I have an undergraduate degree in Hospitality Business Management from Washington State University and a Masters in Business Administration and Doctorate in Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University.  Prior to academics, I worked in the hospitality industry for 30 years, the past 25 in management. This career has spanned both the commercial and non-commercial segments. I have lectured at Washington State University’s College of Business, Gonzaga University’s Jepson School of Business Administration and the School of Professional Studies where I am the Director of Distributive Learning.  I have done development work for a Spokane, Washington non-profit group, and conduct workshops for the Small Business Development Center. I recently spent a semester as a visiting lecturer at University of Dar es Salaam,Tanzania.  I reside in Liberty Lake, WA with my wife, Chan, and son, John.
