Adjunct Assistant Professor
Department of Business Administration
Worldwide College of Business
I am an attorney and Reserve Army officer. I received my BA from Loyola University of Chicago (2014 Men's NCAA Volleyball Champions) with majors in history and political science. I received a JD from Duke Law School and a MA in history from Duke Graduate School. I also have a MA in Strategic Studies from the U. S. Army War College, mostly completed through online training. I have enjoyed multiple professional opportunities. As a trial attorney, I litigated and resolved complex commercial disputes. I also served as corporation counsel handling sophisticated issues, including internationally. For six years, I managed a U.S. Senator's office drafting opinions, analysis, and recommendations on Legislative and legal matters including on the process of impeaching a President, authorizations for the use of force, and financial regulations. As an Army officer, I have served the nation for some 28 years deploying to Panama, Bosnia, Kuwait and Iraq. Currently, I serve as the chief legal officer for the 85th Support Command. My military career has fostered a deep appreciation of continuing education and a deep respect for individuals seeking to expand their knowledge while simultaneously engaged in a career. My goal is to facilitate the learning process for students so that upon completion of the course they can effectively employ their knowledge in their career. I also believe that teaching serves as a learning opportunity for the instructor. I have often learned valuable information and practical lessons in the process of teaching. Whatever free time I have is devoted to my wife and two daughters, ages 10 and 12, enjoying their basketball or baseball games or other events. As a Duke graduate, I bleed Duke blue--GO Blue Devils!
