As of August 2017, I am teaching communication to law students at Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth. From fall 2015 to spring 2017, I taught technical communication and related courses to undergraduates at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I have taught at the university and professional school level for more than 12 years. From 2004 to 2010 and 2013 to 2015, I taught first-year writing, research, and legal analysis as an adjunct instructor at the University of Minnesota Law School. From 2010 to 2015, I taught courses in technical communication and first-year composition as a graduate-student instructor in the Writing Studies Department at the University of Minnesota. For more details about my teaching, including teaching philosophy and student evaluations, see the teaching page on Rhetoricked.com.
I have more than 13 years of experience in private legal practice, focusing much of my work on electronic databases and complex compilations, e-commerce, web branding issues, rule-making for online communities, and trade associations and non-profits. I have deep doctrinal and practical experience in copyright, license agreements, and corporate governance; I have also counseled clients on trademark, domain-name, and antitrust matters. I have a further two years of experience as general counsel and vice president of legal affairs for two small information technology companies; I was responsible for corporate governance and legal compliance.
Management & communications experience
I have nearly 15 years of experience in business management and communications, most recently as chief staff executive of a non-profit information technology company, a subsidiary of an industry trade association. There I had managerial responsibility for all communications, including marketing, customer and shareholder relations, and technical documentation. I supervised a staff of a dozen persons and was directly responsible to a board of directors for all financial reporting, management, and strategic planning. In the five years preceding that position, I served as communications director for a non-profit trade association with 2,000 individual members and as a business graphic designer for a large international consulting firm (predecessor of Deloitte).
