I am teaching Marketing and Entrepreneurship courses in San Diego, Irvine and Online campuses along with course design, development, and updating.  Having worked 18+ years in the worldwide airline industry I bring practicality to the classes and mesh that with the theory all with a focus on serving employers.  My academic interests are everything “marketing” with a focus on product development and updating along with sales…the ticket to revenue.  I have taught or trained thousands around the world and owned my own learning system company which has been used by companies, the military, and academia.  My major emphasis is to bring excitement into the classroom (or online) where there is more than just learning, but a cementing of the learning by doing things that will be needed and valued at work.  Learning is lifelong and 24/7, the important thing is to use it and do it for good.  Come to my classes prepared to grow and to excel, further do what my 4th grade teacher always said: “don’t be a me-no-can, be an I-can-do!”  Welcome to Brandman University.
