My mission is to balance the goals of my personal and professional life while continually gaining new knowledge and seeking wisdom. This effort to balance my goals should not dilute the quality of my goals, but should enhance the quality of life for my family, co-workers, friends, and students.
“To talk in public, to think in solitude, to read and to hear, to inquire
and answer inquiries, is the business of a scholar.”
– Samuel Johnson
My scholarly passion is workforce innovation in our growing global knowledge economy. Specifically, how to foster individual and collective wisdom during all aspects of societal interaction. Additionally, the role of information engagement on self-learning, personal learning networks, and mass customization in knowledge acquisition and transfer within the broad context of performance innovation and information literacy.
