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 occasionally 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!
