Other:

I actually graduated from Brockport in the early 1990's and, after completing my doctoral program at WVU, I found myself back at Brockport in 1999 as a faculty member. Since then, I've thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in interpersonal communication, workplace communication, and training and development. My research has examined student-teacher communication, and more recently I've begun to look at how experts in the workplace communicate their hard-to-describe expertise to others (it's not easy!). My goal in the classroom and in my research is to identify practical and useful ways we can apply what we are learning.

When I'm not busy at work, I'm enjoying time with my family which consists of my wife and I trying to keep up with our two young kids! I fill whatever time is left playing tennis & drums, learning to play piano, going to concerts, and collecting live recordings of concerts.

I've included some more specific professional "stats" below - don't hesitate to contact me if I can be helpful or if it would be good for us to meet.
