I grew up in Indiana and attended Wabash College, where I earned my BA in German and International Economics. I later received my MBA in Finance from Harvard University. My professional career was spent until fairly recently in business, where I held several senior management positions in corporate finance (banking, chocolate and management consulting). Having lived most of my adult life outside the US (primarily in the Netherlands and Latin America), I came to Portland on vacation in 2014 (the first time in the Pacific NW), liked it and decided to stay. I started teaching in the School of Business Administration at Portland State and, at the same time, began guest-teaching at Lincoln in the Business Department. When a former Lincoln Business teacher resigned in the summer of 2015, Ms. Chapman offered me the position which I gladly accepted.
Since I firmly believe that business is arguably the strongest force for change in the world, the opportunity to impart some of my experience and knowledge to our future business leaders was an irresistible challenge.
