I have had a 40 year career as a transportation industry executive, 20 years as President of my own trucking company. In 2011 I was named Outstanding Transportation Person in Northern Indiana. In my capacity as trucking company executive, I gave speeches to industry audiences of 600+, appeared before the Indiana Public Service Commission and the Interstate Commerce Commission.
I have been on the adjunct faculty of IUSB for more than 20 years; teaching - my first love - has been my hobby: what I do instead of bowling or a book club.
I have degrees from the University of Wisconsin and Indiana University.
