About Me


I am an assistant professor of Finance at Illinois State University.  Until Spring 2018, I was at San Diego State University. My primary research focus is corporate finance, including corporate governance and venture capital.

My wife, Katie, and I have a 5 year old daughter and a 1-year old son.  They love playing with their daddy, especially when running or jumping is involved.  In my spare time I like playing with my family, skiing, making things (whether it’s maple syrup or fixing the house), and riding roller coasters.
