I am originally from Michigan and have lived in the south since 1980.  Prior to entering academic teaching I worked in banking.  I have taught at a public and private university.  I came to ASU in 1985 and became department chair in 2005.  I enjoy non-profit work and marketing research for small business.   I am the parent of two ASU students and one King Charles Spaniel and am an avid reader.
