Curriculum Vitae (PDF)

I am an Assistant Professor in Hospitality and Tourism Management in the School of Business at the College of Charleston. I additionally serve as the Director of the Department’s Office of Tourism Analysis.

I hold a Ph.D. in Recreation and Leisure Studies and a Master’s degree in Tourism Policy and Planning, both from the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada), where I worked under the supervision of Dr. Stephen Smith. I also worked for several years as a Tourism Business Analyst for the Toronto Convention and Visitors Bureau.

My primary research focus is on Airbnb and the broader peer-to-peer tourism accommodation sector. I wrote one of the first peer-reviewed journal articles on Airbnb (published online in 2013), and my research in this field has covered topics including consumer behaviour, policy, and pricing.

In addition to Airbnb, I am additionally interested in innovation (particularly disruptive innovation and the diffusion of innovations), virtual reality, market segmentation, volunteer tourism, and gambling behavior.

I live in Charleston with my wife and two children.
