Teaching Interests

Opening the doors to entrepreneurship to all students across campus is the primary focus of my teaching practices. I believe that anyone can learn how to become a successful entrepreneur through practice. All my courses include hands-on practice on how to find opportunities and turn them into successful ventures. An important part of my teaching is showing students how their own passions and interests can become a path to success.

Research, Scholarship or Creative/Artistic Interests

My primary focus is on building bridges across the disciplines to entrepreneurship. I work on collaborating with colleagues in sustainability, the arts, health sciences, psychology, computer science and many more to develop entrepreneurial interest within their students. My goal is to help students focus on how their area of interest and skill sets can help them to identify opportunities in the market.
