Professor, California State University, Fullerton
After marriage to an Iranian lady in Tehran, Iran in 1968, I returned to Tehran in the summer of 1970 to work at the American Embassy. After earning an MBA from Harvard Business School, I remained at Harvard University for another year to study the Persian (Farsi) language. In the early 1970's, Singer Sewing Machine Company sent me on assignments in the Middle East and North Africa, including assignments in Tehran, Iran.
From 1994 to 1996, I was a professor at Sultan Qaboos University in the Sultanate of Oman. This gave me an opportunity to present papers at academic conferences in the United Arab Emirates and in Turkey. Also, I was able to speak to audiences in Iran and to teach English in Iran during vacations to the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1995 and 1996.
My wife makes frequent trips to the Islamic Republic of Iran. In our home in California, we have an international satellite dish providing access to television stations from a large number of countries in the world, including approximately 40 Persian (Farsi) language stations.
