Biography
I’m a teacher–scholar–consultant who aims to understand and improve business and organizational communication. Working in and among multiple disciplines, professional fields, contexts, and media platforms, I seek to enhance the rhetorical–interpretive skills and communication competence of students, professionals, and entrepreneurs. In my scholarly research, I primarily draw upon the traditions of institutionalism, rhetoric, and qualitative methodologies (e.g., shadowing and rhetorical analysis) to understand and improve organizational and business/professional communication. I work with scholars, attend conferences, and publish books and articles in various communication, organization studies, and management sub-disciplines. Increasingly, my scholarly activity focuses on the usefulness of the fundamentals of rhetoric and storytelling (e.g., five canons, classical appeals, and rhetorical devices) in professional identity management and entrepreneurship.
