I am an assistant professor of economics at The King's College in Manhattan. Before joining Kings, I completed my Ph.D. at George Mason University. I received bachelor degrees in economics and in political science from Hillsdale College.
My academic interests include monetary economics, financial markets, public choice economics, the history of economic theory (particularly the works of Adam Smith), and Austrian economics.
I have published in academic journals like the Adam Smith Review, the Journal of Private Enterprise, and the Review of Austrian Economics as well as in popular outlets like USA Today, Fox News, and The Hill.
I have also written a series of columns about Adam Smith's ideas for the Cato Institute.
I live in Harrison, NJ with my lovely wife and our two children.
