Beyond my education, my preparation for an academic career has evolved from experience in numerous fields, primarily government, the law and finance. I have been: a mayor, a county planner, a League of Wisconsin Municipalities lobbyist, a legal advisor to two Wisconsin governors, an advisor to the Wiscosnsin Publiic Service Commission and a Washington lobbyist for a leading nationwide financial firm. I have extensive management experience at senior levels in mortgage banking and commercial banking with national firms.  Currently I am on the Board of a 3-county free clinic organization, and also provide mentoring services to patients of the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics Transplant Department.   In 2014 I received the "Ripon (WI) School District Distinguished Alumni Award."  I hold memberships in: "International Political Science Association", "The American Political Science Association" and the "Midwest Political Science Association".  I enjoy providing both in class face-to-face instruction, as well as my online and interactive, compressed video instructing through affiliation with UW Colleges Online and Distance Education.
