Thank you for visiting my website. I would like this website to be a resource for those academics and doctoral students pursuing a Consumer Culture Theory (CCT) research and teaching agenda. Under the “presentations” page you will find many of my recent presentations given at various industry events, doctoral student workshops, and seminars. Please contact me if you have questions or would like to discuss a particular topic. And connect with me on Facebook!
