Applied Microeconomics, Economic Development, & Political Economy


“Impactful Instruction, Meaningful Learning."

I've had the privilege of teaching hundreds of students throughout my teaching career, which prior to George Mason University includes 5 years of teaching Principles of Economics and founding the Asian Studies program at the Delaware Military Academy (2013-18). Each class period, I make it my aim to invite students into the learning process through enthusiastic, student-centered instruction and facilitating a classroom environment where each student can flourish.
