In general, I am interested in how people and organizations lead positive social change inside and outside of organizational boundaries. Specifically, my research attempts to better understand how institutional structures affect people and organizations. In turn, my research also examines how people and organizations affect these structures. From a practical perspective, my aim is to illustrate how actors can navigate the institutional landscape in which they operate and work to be effective change agents. I have had papers published (or accepted) in the following journals: Journal of Management Inquiry, Sport Management Review, Journal of Sport Management, African Journal of Business and Economic Research, International Review for the Sociology of SportInternational Journal of Sport Management, Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics, and International Journal of Sport Management and Marketing, among others.

I am currently working on papers addressing the following:

  1. Social movements/activism
  2. Racial diversity in the sport industry
  3. Social responsibility
