I moved to Arizona from California when I was 10 years old.  I attended Mountain Pointe High School and enrolled as an honors student at Arizona State University, where I initially studied psychology because of my interest in human behavior.  This later led me to economics, which was the pivot in my journey leading me to my faculty position today.  Besides teaching economics, I'm also involved in increasing awareness of sustainability in the college and in the curriculum.  To better serve my college and its students, I completed a doctorate in education in Community College Leadership from Ferris State University in 2015. I started my tenure as the faculty director for EMCC's Center for Teaching and Learning in July 2017 and look forward to helping faculty and staff attain all of their professional development needs. My interests include hiking, yoga, weight training, reading a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books, cooking, watching classic and new movies, camping, national and international travel, and walking/running my two ludicrous dogs. I've been happily married to my amazing wife Lysistrata since 2012, and our first son Paul, the joy of my life, was born in October 2016.
