I have been teaching Economics at Saddleback College since Fall 2007. Prior to joining Saddleback College, I worked as a Senior Research Assistant for the Office of Economic Research at CSULB compiling data for annual Economic Forecast for Southern California and its Counties. I have also worked with the Port of Long Beach to analyze the economic impact of port activities on downtown Long Beach and usage of the port by Long Beach firms. While working on my Master's degree, I assisted Dr. Lisa Grobar of CSULB by analyzing data for a paper published in the Journal of Growth and Change titled "The Economic Status of Port Cities: Evidence and Policy Issues".

I am currently the Chair of the Economics Department, Chair of the Political Science Department and Co-Chair of the OER/ZTC Work Group. If you are interested in learning more about Open Educational Resources or Zero Textbook Cost, please visit the ZTC Saddleback website. For Fall 2019, I am using OER from Lumen Learning.
