Fun fact: 

– Youngest marketing professor to be hired by a North American b-school,

– Spend summers touring Europe with my rock band “Rocksoldiers,”

– Create perfumes in my spare time

– Founded the Levy Award that honors breakthrough research by young marketing professors

– Own six dwarf bunnies

Professor I most admire: Professor Eileen Fischer who hired me. She embodies passion, respect, and great mentorship.

Most memorable moment as a professor:

#1 In 2008: Public battle with former RIM CEO Jim Balsillie at Schulich who dismissed my detailed predictions about the coming demise of BlackBerry

#2 This week: (reviewing student evaluations from last semester):

“If I weren’t a b-school professor…” I would write songs again.
