MBA from Suffolk University; B.S., Boston College 


I was a management consulting partner at Arthur D. Little (ADL) living and working in Europe for over 9 years located in Paris, France.  I was a partner in the strategy and corporate finance practices with experience in international finance, strategic alliance negotiations, venture capital, merger and acquisitions, post-merger integration, change management, foreign expansion, and debt financing.

After returning home, exhausted from the work, I decided to take a break and improve my golf game. A summer later and 5 strokes off my handicap I was looking for a new challenge. I continue to do consulting on a project basis and discovered teaching…I have recently taught strategy, finance, and global business courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs in Suffolk University and I am currently teaching operations management, finance and global business at Emmanuel College.

I believe that learning is a partnership between student and teacher and both sides, as in a good partnership, need to understand their commitment and be accountable.  Finally, passing a course in not a measure of knowledge, applying the information/techniques you have obtained in class to your real-life jobs shows you truly acquired knowledge.
