I am an avid sports fan, but am also concerned about some aspects of the contemporary sport enterprise. I hope students leave my classes with the industry knowledge, but also having reflected on the "why" of sport. As students graduate and enter career fields related to sport or simply become parents of kids who play sport, I want them to consider the social, legal, and ethical ramifications of the sport-related choices they make. I believe the best learning takes place through the process of "doing and reflecting" and in constructivist teaching and learning methods. Finally, I am convinced that the most effective teachers, the ones who truly engage and connect with students, are those who make learning real.

My research explores organizational systems and structures which enhance or detract from the experiences of sport volunteers and contract staff. Sports officials (referees and umpires) are a population of significant interest.
