Associate Professor and Distinguished Teaching Professor

Department of Finance and Real Estate

There is nothing else I would rather do than share my knowledge and appreciation of finance with my students.

As a teacher, I often find myself thinking how fortunate I am to be able to embody the famous Confucius quote: "Find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life." As such, my primary drive while interacting with students is to enable them to achieve this state, both during their time in my classroom and in their future careers. I try to motivate my students to enthusiastically seek knowledge and develop a lifelong affinity for the process of learning. I try to accomplish these goals by creating an interactive and supportive environment and by making learning enjoyable through the infusion of personal anecdotes and real-world applications.
