Student comments about the classes I teach:

"I currently work in the social media marketing side of the company so this class helps me a lot with the times to post as well as what brings traffic and clicks. I just wanted to say thank you for giving me a chance to learn more about marketing on the social media side. I'm a communications major, but this class sparked my interest in business. - Matt G., BUS 59 Social Media Marketing student

"Thank you so much for bringing this opportunity to me, and for being the greatest teacher. This class has been amazing and I have no doubt that everything I learned will come in handy somewhere down the road." - Natalie W., BUS 59 Social Media Marketing student

My Background

I have over 30 years of professional experience in marketing, corporate finance, management, strategic planning, mergers & acquisitions, venture development, data network design, and systems design & development in several industries, including telecommunications, information technology, entertainment, computer manufacturing, and financial services. Companies that I have worked with ranged from startups to Fortune 100 companies in the U.S. and globally, including AT&T Bell Labs as a Member of the Technical Staff, at MCI as the Director of Corporate Development, and at IBM leading the development of the business plan of a new global service. I have worked in various capacities as a CEO & CFO in several startups, and as a partner or consultant in several international consulting firms, including Booz Allen, Gemini, McKenna, and TechSynergy, with a total M&A deal size of over $6 Billion.

I have been teaching at De Anza College since 2011. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and hiking with my three dogs. I hold a second-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I hope to see you in my classes. If you have any question about the classes I teach, please do not hesitate to contact me or come see me during my office hours.
