1)     What professional achievement are you most proud of? (teaching and/or research)

I am most proud of my students.  Nothing makes me prouder than watching them graduate.


2)     What is one book all business students should read and why?

This one is easy.  I recommend that all my students read the book I am going to write!


3)     Why did you become a professor/instructor?

I have always loved to teach.  It just took me a few years to realize it.


4)     On a personal note, what is the most interesting place you have visited and what made it so interesting?
The classroom is the most interesting place I have visited.  Although I have been to every US state, South America, and Europe, the classroom is the best place to visit!!  Nothing beats watching the students engage with themselves, others, and the material.
