Cosumnes River College

I was a rock star in my first life. I played for a band called Half Way Home who made CD’s for Geffen records (a pretty major player in the recording industry). We toured the U.S. and Canada. I recorded some music for the Jim Carey Movie, “The Cable Guy)—his biggest flop. I should have been rich and famous.

After the band broke up I went to a local community college (College of the Desert) and started taking classes. Econ was one of the first classes I took. Economics really made sense to me so I just kept taking more classes until I got a Ph. D. After getting my Ph. D. I accepted a position to teach economics Cosumnes River College (CRC).  My Degrees in economics are from the University of California Riverside.  My research focused on the water transfer between Imperial Valley and San Diego. It looked at the effects of water transfers on profits for farmers, unemployment, and the environmental effects on the Salton Sea.  

I have been a tutor in math and econ for many years. I have taught econ for many years. The rest is history.
