I currently serve as the Director of the M.A. in Strategic Communication at Michigan State University. I help steward the marketing, admissions, course design and support for the program as well as teach in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences.
Previously I served as Vice President for Marketing & Sales for MediaFusion in a leadership and innovator role. Prior to MediaFusion, I served as Executive Director of Communications and Technology for the Free Methodist Church, USA. I led the team responsible for communication strategy and implementation. I also teach communication strategy and develop online courses in higher eduction, most recently at Michigan State University
I have spoken to many groups on the following topics:
- Finding Your Leadership
- Organizational Change
- Creating a Communication Strategy
- Who You Are Matters More Than What You Can do
I’ve worked with emerging technologies to develop pathways for faculty and staff in higher education to accomplish their teaching strategies and goals. This includes video production, Web site design, development, content management, and faculty consultations. I also built systems for faculty to deliver rich media to their students through the Blackboard Learning Management System, Desire to Learn, Kaltura MediaSpace and iTunes U.
Before working in higher education, I worked in the general marketplace to build an integrated marketing campaigns from writing, print, Flash development, video production, and Web design and development. The life before higher ed was as a pastor and church planter in small, medium, and large churches. Communication has always been something I love.

I highly encourage comments. I’ll be adding features including a regular email newsletter and working on potentially publishing my first book on leadership and organizational change. Thanks for joining along on the journey.
