Research Interests:
The primary goal of my research is to explore the nature of work relationships and apply the social influence and effectiveness processes literatures to sport management, with particular attention being paid to recruiting, reputation, and the concept of political skill (i.e., social astuteness, interpersonal influence, networking ability, and apparent sincerity). My research is also aimed at improving the quantity and quality of understanding of sport consumer behaviors. Specifically, how identification and relationship quality constructs (i.e., trust, commitment, and reciprocity) influence sport consumer consumption behaviors such as attendance.

My teaching philosophy is centered around 5 C's. Specifically, the belief that commitment, confidence, compassion, cultivating active learning among students, and continual professional development are essential concepts to acquiring knowledge and building a foundation for life-long learning, both for myself and most especially for my students.

For example, I believe teachers should be committed to their discipline and dedicated to their students and job. Commitment should be fueled by faith, passion and pure enjoyment for the subject matter, pride in one's performance, and a heartfelt desire to be competent, valued, and successful in inspiring as great, if not greater levels of commitment in others (for their own respective passions). The commitment and enthusiasm of teachers is undeniably passed on to their students, and these students then become inspired and committed to their own particular areas of interest. This is one reason why I have such strong motivation for teaching in the sport management area. Because students' levels of interest in sports have far exceeded the rate of job creation at the most popular competitive levels (i.e., professional and Division I), it is critically important to not only explain and demonstrate the subjects well, but also rouse a strong desire in students to take their learning above and beyond the classroom setting so they may maximize their own career potential.
