Background Information

I'm a full time instructor teaching principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics courses at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, California. In addition to committee work, I'm also the lead on a grant pursuing a tobacco free campus environment. A great challenge and opportunity to put the study of choice into action! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, mountain biking, surfing, reading and hiking with my Labrador Retriever.

Related Pedagogical Projects

I just completed a fellowship with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Over the course of this one-year commitment I, along with a cohort of other teachers and instructors, evaluated Fed learning materials, discussed best practices, shared Fed resources with colleagues at conferences, and developed lesson plans to improve student learning pertaining to monetary policy and banking.
