About Me

I am a PhD candidate in Economics at Texas A&M University in College Station.  My research is concerned with the long run effects of large, transformational Federal policies such as Redlining, Head Start, and Medicaid.  Before my PhD, I studied Economics at the Masters level in Nevada while I also taught Philosophy courses like Critical Thinking, Symbolic Logic and Introduction to Philosophy.  I’ve also published  articles about Philosophy and the History of Science.

For most of that time, I’ve also been a busy father.  I have two boys, Jack (7 years old) and Max (18 months old).  When I can find the time, I enjoy hiking, reading Plato and drinking coffee.  I haven’t figured out how to do all three at once, but maybe someday I will!
