I have been teaching food and beverage courses at the University of Wisconsin-Stout for the past 32 years. Stout is known for its experiential and innovative philosophy of instruction and is a national leader in its programs. My expertise is in the area of full-service restaurant management, culinary management, wines and spirits, wine and food pairing, and professional dining etiquette. I am the director of "Rendezvous", a full-service restaurant managed and operated by senior students in the Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management program. I have also taught Wine and Food Pairing in Spain, France, and Australia for the past 18 years with cross-cultural experiences for Stout students.
