MISFIT AUTHOR

My misfit mindset has lead me to be a lifelong student of Organizational Psychology in hopes of helping people and the organizations they work for thrive.

I am currently the department head of Management at the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver and have previously been on the faculty at Oklahoma State University and Tulane University. I actually got a PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology and made it through Wharton’s elite Advanced Management Program.

Professionally, I wear two hats: one hat is my professor hat (business research hat) and the other hat is my real-world hat (practitioner hat). I adhere to a scientist-practitioner view for my professional life: business research needs to be application-focused and business application needs to be research driven.

A misfit who is a Fellow in the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology—the most prestigious group of I/O Psychologists in the world, a former editor for the prestigious Journal of Management, published over 50 journal articles and book chapters, given hundreds of talks at leading organizations, universities, and conferences, and founded a pretty successful business.

Love chasing critters in the fall, coaching my kids' soccer teams, catching redfish, pretending to be a chef, trying to gain a deeper world view, learning as much as possible, and seeing my students, clients, and friends become misfits of their own!
