Welcome to my website.  Following the demise of, which I had hosted for over 10 years, I launched this website in 2013. It has a new host, a new look, and a new domain name (
Here you’ll find an academic section with details on my classes, and my research. Currently I am Senior Associate Dean and Associate Dean for Faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, but I still teach courses for the Economics Department. There’s also a section about the consulting and expert witness services I offer.
I post frequently to a blog called Ramblings.  Then there are my personal pages, that let me share a little of myself.  You can read about my obsession with my car, bicycles, photography, woodwork and a few other things.  My photography site has been around the web the longest, and doesn’t get the attention it deserves, I’m afraid.
I hope you find something of interest here. If you do, please comment via the Facebook and Twitter sharing links–or not. Thanks for visiting, and cheers!

Unfortunate name

I was watching the 2015 Canadian Open (yeh, who knew?) and saw this on the TV screen:


I burst out laughing, and took the photo to share with others, thinking they too would find it funny. Apparently it’s not as funny to others as to me. The golfer’s name is Garrett Rank, and he’s an amateur golfer playing in the Open (by qualifying, or by invitation) hence the (A) after his name. I saw this and read it literally: Rank amateur, which is something no golfer wants to be called. In fact, Rank is a ranked amateur: the World Amateur Golf Rankings place him number 312 at present. He missed the cut for the Canadian Open.

Well, I had a good laugh at it.
