Why Northland?

Northland College provides a unique opportunity considering its geographical location, especially its nearest to Lake Superior. As a business professor with research interest, I will be researching into: "The qualitative study of the business of lake superior and how it influences culture in Ashland".


I teach finance, International business, and management courses. Especially teaching finance courses is full fun. Using online financial tools and software to demonstrate time on investment, exchange rate, and portfolios makes students turn their everyday life activities into a reality.

Student Involvement

  • Students learn more when they are allowed to discover for themselves new and challenging problems, in my class, the professor learn with the students rather only teach.
  • Students research on everyday problems and suggest ways of solving them, which encourages smart learning with the availability of modern technologies.
  • Students improve their communication skills with regular power point presentations, discussions, and peer critique.
  • Students research and present on conferences, study abroad and publish their scholarly work
  • Students go on educational tour such as the Federal Research Bank and many more

Personal Interests

Stress management is essential for my work to be successful, as a result, I will engage in the following hobbies and activities: fishing, cooking, swimming, and soccer is full of fun as it exercise the whole body, including beach soccer.
