I am Avraham Shama, but people call me Avi.

Thank you for visiting me on these pages.

I am a writer, university professor, business school dean, and consultant. I work with words; big and small, bold and shy, happy and sad, and share them with my readers, students, clients, and the public.


My tales are about life, spying, business, and innovation.


Though I already spoke two other languages, I started out as an English major because I wanted to be a writer. I switched to economics in order to make a living. 


My writing, teaching, and consulting reinforce each other.

Done right, they are very rewarding. My many writing and teaching awards attest to this.


I hope you find this website useful.
