Bio

My professional background encompasses 35+ years in fields of brand management, product development, strategic planning, market research design & execution, and retail management.

I currently serve as a professor of Marketing at JWUs Providence Campus. I was recently elected chair of the Faculty Council.

In 2012, I was a national finalist for the National Campus Compact Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award for exemplary leadership in engaged scholarship, contributions to the public good, and advancing students’ civic learning.

In addition, I serve as board president of the Southside Cultural Center of RI, a nonprofit education and arts organization, and as board chairman of Stop Wasting Abandoned Property (SWAP).
