I am Professor of Public Management Emeritus at the University of Toronto, having retired in July 2020 after a 45-year academic career.
I continue to be engaged in research, writing, and giving professional presentations. With my co-author and spouse Beth Herst, I am completing a book on narrative and politics.
On this website I post blogs about politics, narrative, and my life experiences.
