About Me

"I leapt headlong into the Sea, and thereby have become better acquainted with the Soundings, the quicksands & the rocks, than if I stayed upon the green shore, and piped a silly song, and took tea and comfortable advice."

John Keats

I am a teacher with extensive experience in assisting transportation, logistics, retail, distribution and computer services firms around the world improve the performance of their businesses through the application of information technology.  I am experienced in the design, development and teaching of graduate and executive level education.  I have major strengths in business engineering and information technology strategy.  As an imaginative out-of-the-box thinker with an emphasis on ideas, innovation and long-range planning, I am often involved in first-of-a-kind projects.  My focus is on producing real outcomes from fact-based systematic thinking.  Over an extensive career I have established a reputation as an excellent team player with a strong commitment to students and customers.

I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the Global Business and Transportation Department at the Maritime College.  I was the Chair of the the Global Business and Transportation Department from April 2012 – December 2015; Acting Director of the Graduate Program in International Transportation Management from May 2005 – August 2006.; Director on Online Programs at Maritime from September 2007 – April 2016.  I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in international business, logistics, supply chain, marketing management, intermodal freight transportation, management information systems, systems design and control, transportation systems, and transportation management.    I also teach the Leadership course to incoming freshman each fall.  I designed, developed, and delivered the first distance learning course at Maritime.

Prior to joining the Maritime College, I was affiliated with Baruch College as an Adjunct Professor in the Marketing Department where I taught a graduate level course in international logistics. I was a member of the Steering Committee of the Executives-on-Campus Program and a member of the Business Advisory Council of the Bernard L. Schwartz Communications Institute.  I assisted Kingsborough Community College gain a Kauffman Collegiate Entrepreneurship Network grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.  I was co-author of the first Adjunct Faculty Handbook at Baruch College.

I have been a guest lecturer at Baruch and Maritime colleges, Northwestern and Quinnipiac universities on such diverse topics as communications, ethics, information technology, marketing, and international business.
