I consider learning to be one of the most exciting, satisfying experiences in life and I seek to generate a similar enthusiasm for learning among my students. I also see teaching as being highly complementary to my research and consulting as a source of inspiration and new ideas. Given my teaching experiences as a professor, PhD and MBA student and while working as a strategy consultant, I am comfortable teaching at all levels within and beyond the business school. My teaching interests span the areas of core strategy, strategic leadership, non-market and political strategy, the cannabis industry, consulting, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility.
My teaching at the McIntire School of Commerce, University of Virginia:
- GCOM7651 Strategic Leadership (graduate MS Global Commerce program)

- GCOM7560 Management Consulting & Advisory Services (graduate MS Commerce program)
As a General Faculty member at UVA, my efforts are focused on teaching and curriculum/program development. In addition to the courses I have taught to date, I am also exploring the development of potential new courses in Global Strategy, Leadership, Non-Market Strategy and the Business of Cannabis.
