During my doctoral program at Iowa State University, I specialized in agricultural economics, labor economics and applied econometrics. My research concerns the impact of transgenic cotton adoption on cotton production in sub-Saharan Africa. My former students at Iowa State and Drake University inspired me to explore the impact of mobile games in economic education on serious gamers. I enjoy ballroom dancing and art.

I am an interdisciplinary sport management scholar who uses a social justice lens to understand how the social world impacts individuals’ lives and frames their experiences in the sporting and eSports context. This lens guides my research, teaching, and service and informs my ultimate goal of understanding and dismantling the underpinnings of social inequity based on gender, race, religion, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, and other dimensions of identity. The combination of my expertise as a social-psychologist (who primarily studies phenomena at the socio-individual level of analysis) and as a transnational scholar (who primarily study phenomena at the cultural level of analysis) uniquely positions me to ask questions, examine topics, and explore assumptions often neglected in mainstream sporting/ business paradigms and conversations. I not only examine the experiences of individuals but how those experiences relate to and stem from larger social processes and structures in the sporting context. In so doing, I forge new ground by contextualizing people’s everyday lives within the society in which they live. Currently, I am teaching courses in the realm of business and sport management at Ripon College.

I have been a resident of Ripon since 1984 and an adjunct professor, off & on, since 1992. My focus was business, entrepreneurship, and the relationship of business to society. Recently, I developed a course to introduce students to techniques and styles of management.
My vocation was hospital management, then COO of a 1 million square foot distribution warehouse, and an executive director of a Red Cross Chapter.

I’m an applied microeconomist with a liberal arts background who likes to connect the theories and data of economics with the wider world of people and ideas. I grew up mainly in Pennsylvania and Upper Michigan before studying in a liberal arts college in Minnesota and graduate school in Wisconsin. Travel across the world and research in several Latin American countries inform my teaching of international and development economics courses. In environmental economics and history of economic thought, I connect economics with other ways of seeing the world in natural science and history. I also dig into the big picture of economic concepts and data with students in principles of macroeconomics and intermediate macroeconomics, as well as Catalyst seminars. My two children grew up in Ripon where my wife and I enjoy living.
