Deeply in gross in teaching on an adjunct basis and developing a number of international business projects. I enjoy working with a number of international students from such countries as Spain, France, Turkiye, Philipines, Pakistan, Panama, Mexico and Australia on business projects.
The combination of teaching global courses and working with international students is highlight of my professional career. The opportunity to interact with international students with creative ideas and strategies is an adrenalin rush.
I would like to encourage American students to become active in global commerce and be sensitive to the way of doing business beyond the borders of the USA. The market place and production activities are becoming globalized and business administration students here in the USA need to oriented into the globalization. I enjoy developing international business courses to meet the challenge and generate excitement among the students to study global courses. Hopefully, they will become international trade entrepreneurs.
I really enjoy traveling to foreign countries on business and developing a personal business relationship with suppliers and buyers. The development of personal relationships in a business relationship is of immense importance in creating the proper environment to do business. There is less of a concern for legalese and paper chase. The enjoyment of foreign cultures and cuisine are the intangibles of participating in global commerce.

Will be traveling to Honolulu, Hawaii to provide documents, photographs and recollection of my father's WWII combat experiences to the survivors of the 1st Filipino Infantry Regiment in the Southwest Pacific Theater of Operations. The Hawaiian group has received a generous grant to produce a documentary film that depict the history of the unit and the "untold stories" of their contribution to the war effort. The documentary film will be presented later in 2001 on the PBS channel. The unit experience parallel the discrimination and unfair treatment imposed upon the famous Japanese-American 442 Regimental Combat Team during WWII. The time and efforts of the survivors and descendants present the "untold stories" would be fitting tribute to all those who served under such unfair conditions.
