I teach FINAN 6300 and 6310. I'm also the CEO/Founding Partner at CMO Zen, a fractional CMO firm specializing in early stage companies. I've spent the past 20 years as a marketing executive and CEO building and growing companies. Along the way, I earned a BFA from BYU and an MBA from the U of U.

I'm the co-author of Pillars of Inflection: Seven fundamental strategies for explosive company growth.
