I was born in Demarest, New Jersey in 1982 but my family moved to South Florida when I was very young. I grew up in Boca Raton, FL and attended Pope John Paul II High School.
I went to Loyola University New Orleans from 2000 – 2004, double majoring in economics and marketing. After completing an honors thesis and graduating with a Bachelors of Business Administration, I entered the Economics Ph.D. program at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
I defended my dissertation, “The Imprisoner’s Dilemma: The Political Economy of Proportionate Punishment,” in May of 2008. Finally, I have since returned to New Orleans as an Assistant Professor of Economics back at my alma mater Loyola.
Four words to describe myself, “I think ideas matter.”
I like music, golf, bowling, collecting vinyl, photography, film and other cool stuff.
