About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Occupation Associate Teaching Professor
Location Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
Introduction I teach at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA USA, in the Heinz College where I have taught for the past eight years, full time. Before that I served as Vice President of Marketing at a state-wide health care organization. I have an active life as a consultant and have many years of successfully using language to inform and persuade.
Interests Marketing, corporate communication, fund development, education, writing, literature, music
Favorite Movies Pacino, De Niro, Damon, Paltrow, many others
Favorite Music Jazz and classical music appeal most to me. I follow contemporary jazz but don't like "smooth jazz". I like music that challenges the listener and in that regard I prefer "outside" jazz and classical music, that which stretches the boundaries.
Favorite Books I prefer contemporary literature, especially that being written by women and Asians. Again, I prefer to be challenged in my reading.
