I am an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Winnipeg.  Previously, I was an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Business at the University of Otago in New Zealand.

Before beginning my academic career, I was privileged to be an analyst and project manager at Longwoods International, a consultancy firm specialising in tourism destination marketing, visitor profiling, and measuring the efficiency of tourism advertising and promotion. Since then, I have undertaken consulting assignments in the area of aviation policy. For a time, I was a Roster Consultant with the Business Development Bank of Canada, where I enjoyed working with small Winnipeg–based companies in the areas of marketing and general strategy.

My academic work focuses on the economic and legal regulation of commercial air transport in Canada and New Zealand. As is often the case with academics, I have held large research grants and published books and journal articles. My vita is available upon request.


An Overview of New Zealand Airport Regulation (2017) (for the Department of Finance, Government of Canada).

An Assessment of Foreign Investment Limits on Air Service Provision in Canada (2015) - for the Review Secretariat of the Canada Transportation Act (2015) (with A Schiff).

The effect of levels of air service availability on the inbound tourism demand from Asia to Australia (with D. Tan and T.T.R. Koo).


I consult in the areas of aviation policy and regulation, business and marketing strategy and tourism marketing, branding and positioning. I have experience working with governments and private sector firms.
