Craig Snow has studied, researched, taught, written about, and provided consulting services concerning managerial communication for the past 37 years. Dr. Snow is currently a Senior Lecturer at Cornell University, where he has taught for 24 of the past 28 years. He directed the managerial communications program at The Olin School of Business at Washington University, served as assistant director of the business writing program at Purdue University, and has received numerous awards for excellence in teaching from Purdue and Cornell. His teaching is enriched by hands-on experience in business. He has served as director and executive director of a non-profit organization: a children's summer sleep-away camp in New York State's Catskill Mountains.

He is the co-author of Prentice Hall's Guide to Report Writing (2002). When he is not working with students and professionals, he can typically be found playing pick-up basketball—and he plans to continue to do so for as long as his hips, knees, and ankles hold out.
