Author Bio

I have spent most of my life as a working entrepreneur. My wife, Molly and I started our first business in 1971, a retail store on Robson Street in Vancouver, British Columbia. We were tea, coffee and spice merchants for 10 years, during which time we fell in love with yachting. We sold our retail store and our Vancouver home in the early eighties and moved aboard our yacht, Cresthaven. I founded a business in Sidney, British Columbia, which repaired and restored old wooden boats. I operated this business from our country home for 15 years. In 1994, I enrolled in the Masters of Business Administration at the University of Victoria MBA program. As my Master’s thesis, I wrote a curriculum in Entrepreneurship, which was successfully implemented. I was hired as a lecturer upon the completion of my MBA. I realized that I needed a PhD in order to be able obtain a tenure-track position so I could develop a significant voice in faculty affairs. I spent 5 years in PhD studies at the University of Victoria. I founded and operated a consulting business, during my graduate studies. Upon completion of my dissertation, a study of the oral histories of self identified entrepreneurs, I received my PhD in 2003. That same year, I received a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor at California State University, Hayward. I received tenure and promotion to Associate Professor at California State University, East Bay in 2009.

Molly and I live in the East Bay Hills and most days I ride my bicycle to work.
