Download Vita...

After I received my B.S. in Finance summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, I spent several years working as a Financial Analyst for Sovereign Bank in Boston, Massachusetts. In 2013, I received my PhD from the University of Connecticut and was thrilled to move back to New Mexico later that year to teach the fantastic students at Anderson.

My recent research has focused on expanding our understanding of agency theory and the implications of executive compensation. I have also published several articles in International Finance, a field of increasing relevance in the globalized world of the coming decades. When not researching (or Finance-ing), I enjoy hiking, history, genealogy, astronomy, and many other (nerdy) hobbies.

I am most grateful to my wonderful wife Nicole and my son James, born in March 2014, who is already Financing at a toddler-level.
