I joined Saddleback College in Fall of 1990 as an instructor in economics but soon became involved in the Honors Program, which I chaired from 1992 to 1998. I returned to that position in 2007 and now serve also as as faculty advisor to Alpha Gamma Sigma, Phi Theta Kappa, and the Honors Student Council. I'm a Past President and is currently the Chair of Transfer Relations for the Honors Transfer Council of California, a consortium of 60 community college honors programs.

Prior to coming to Saddleback, I taught on either a part-time or full-time basis at the University of Southern California, New York University, Dowling College, Orange County (NY) Community College, Rockland County Community College, Long Island University, and the City University of New York. I was then a Research Fellow at the C. V. Starr Center for Applied Economics at New York University and a research economist in various legal cases involving antitrust, patents, and other business issues before I realized I didn't care which company got whatever pile of money was up for grabs and came back to academia.
