• WELCOME

    Welcome to the hub for my academic and social entrepreneurship initiatives. Outside of teaching and leadership roles, I am very engaged in online learning. In 2019 I developed TeachingMVP, a platform that helps instructors get the help they need - complementing what they receive at their school or campus. As always, a portion of my time is dedicated to expanding Hospitalented. I am also using my 'found' time to work with TravelUnity.org and ICHRIE.

    MEETINGS

    How can I help?

    If we should meet to discuss a problem of some kind, the quickest way to make that happen is to contact me via email above.

    INTERVIEWS

    Have a story to tell?

    I'm always looking to create good content for my students. Whether you come to class or we do the interview in a studio, this is where we start.

    RESEARCH

    What can we learn?

    I am interested in how hospitality and tourism can impact economies. I also want to conduct research in online learning.

  • VOLUNTEERISM & PROJECTS

    These are things I am passionate about.

    Helping faculty improve online

    As a complement to the work that instructional designers and IT professionals provide faculty, I developed a number of workshops. Each one addresses specific skills to deliver better online courses.

    Education via MicroSD

    When I visit Ghana I distribute 50-100 microSD chips loaded with tourism education videos and files. The 'HospiPods' require no internet and very little power, and can be passed on to others. The goal is to give those with less access to education a means for becoming tourism entrepreneurs.

    DEI Standards for organizations

    Over several months we have worked with many voices to create 'Certified by Travel Unity,' a set of standards that will guide organizations to become more welcoming through the prism of DEI. This is a project I am very active in.

  • SCHOLARSHIP

    My research ranges from areas of hospitality and tourism, to best practices in online pedagogy. As we continue to make adjustments within the COBID-19 era, there is a tremendous opportunity to think differently about how we approach workforce development and distance education.
