This website is an extension of my research and interests in adult education taken from a workplace perspective. The critique of Human Resource Development and Management is developed though the fields of labor history, political economy and critical management studies. My particular areas of interests are Industrial Democracy and the evolution of it's multiple meanings; propaganda, especially corporate propaganda as crafted by the public relations firms and, the managerial discourse of empowerment and engagement.

This is a work in progress ... visit me from time to time, critique it and drop me a line,

If you are interested in my photography, you may see some here or Erika's Wedding
