Formerly, my focus was on Sales and Marketing, now it’s 100% on teaching. For the past 14 years, I’ve been teaching at the College Adjunct Level in both IL and WI. Among the courses I’ve taught are Composition, Literature, Humanities, Speech, Shakespeare, Literature in the Workplace, Business Composition, and Critical Thinking, among others.

Most recently, I specialized in the sales and marketing of Becton-Dickinson Products (BD) throughout the U.S., focusing on hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, outpatient facilities, emergency daycare facilities, and surgery centers. Other companies I’ve worked with while in inside sales for West Corporation are 3M, 3M Commercial, and Amgen, among others. In the past, I’ve also assisted in the development and launch of marketing and sales programs in support of cellular phones and related technology products worldwide for Motorola.
Sales and Marketing Experience:

I have over 20 years sales, marketing, promotion, and training experience with such companies as Motorola, Motorola Cellular, the Outboard Marine Corporation, and the Miller Brewing Company, among others. In addition, I’ve also worked for business-to-business advertising agencies in Chicago and Milwaukee, developing marketing and advertising campaigns, creating sales promotion programs, conducting research, and designing training programs.

Academic Background:

I have a B.A. in English from St. John’s University, Collegeville, MN, and an M.A. in Education with specialization in English from Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. Following two years in the Army, I returned briefly to graduate school for an additional nine (9) credits.
Military Experience:

I served two years in the Army as an officer in the Medical Service Corps. Stationed in Germany, I missed going to Vietnam by two weeks. Many of my fellow soldiers and friends were not so fortunate.
Hobbies and Interests:

Having spent 20 years in Chicago, I’ve developed a love of baseball (yes, I’m a diehard Cubs fan). I also love football. On a personal note, I enjoy tennis, biking, swimming, reading, and trips to the zoo, park, and museums with my daughter Michelle and granddaughter Allura. Michelle recently completed her M.A. degree and is not teaching. Allura is enrolled in Fifth Grade. My lovely wife of 43 years, Sheila, takes care of us all, including our lovely dog, Heidi. She’s a cross between a Chow and Border Collie whom we adopted from the local Green Bay Humane Society five years ago.
