About

I’m a writer and business professor on the faculty of Lipscomb University’s College of Business in Nashville, Tennessee.

This website includes course content as a resource for students in my classes, but it’s also meant to be a gift to anyone looking for career (or life) inspiration, hope, or direction.

My inspirational/historical fiction novel, Leaving Independence, was released by Waterfall Press in June 2016.
