I am a legal studies professor in the Spears School of Business at Oklahoma State University. My research explores employment law and its impact on business environment. My work addresses issues of worker classification, restrictions on employee mobility, and dispute resolution. My article on the "blue pencil doctrine" has been cited with approval by three State Supreme Courts, as well as a host of other state and federal courts.

At OSU, I teach employment law, the legal aspects of international business, and commercial transactions.

I graduated from the University of Texas School of Law. I practiced law for a number of years in both Texas and Lousiana, and am a member of both bars. While practicing, I worked as a commercial litigator, representing primarily defendants. I made extensive courtroom appearances: jury trials, bench trials, and countless hearings.
