I am an assistant professor of economics in the Donald R. Tapia
School of business at Saint Leo University. I teach
microeconomics, macroeconomics, behavioral economics, and
econometrics. I run the IFWE reading group here at Saint Leo and help
Frank Orlando run the IFWE speaker series.
Along with Pamela Cooper, I am the co-creator of Oikonomia:
Economics for Life and Purpose course for the homeschool
I currently live in Tampa, FL. My life as an economist is a
second career for me. Before economics and academia I was an electrical
engineer in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I enjoy teaching at Saint Leo University. My current research interests are: 1) how economic and political
institutions impact the poor in the developing world and 2) the political
economy of rent seeking. Other areas of interest are public economics and
financial and monetary economics.
