Applied Microeconomics, Economic Development, & Political Economy

About


I'm originally from the Philadelphia area, and now live in Falls Church, VA with my wife, Colleen.  We met at the University of Delaware, where we were both student athletes (she, a highly successful one). In our free time, we enjoy traveling together (pictures below), exercising, and trying out new cuisines. I love playing folk music and fingerstyle guitar, and I'm a longsuffering Philadelphia sports fan. 
Prior to pursuing a Ph.D., I taught Principles of Economics at the Delaware Military Academy (2013-18), where I also founded and ran the Asian Studies program. I received a B.A. in history education from the University of Delaware (2011), an M.A. in Economics & Entrepreneurship Education from the University of Delaware (2017), and an M.A. (2021) and Ph.D. (2022, expected) in economics from George Mason University.
