Areas of Expertise

Real Estate

I have earned a BA in Economics, BS in Mathematics, both from the University of California Irvine, and an MS in Economics & Finance from University of California in Santa Cruz. 

I taught Calculus and Economics courses while a graduate student at the University of California in Santa Cruz and currently teach Undergraduate Economics courses online and hold a position in Risk Management with Wells Fargo Bank. 

Upon completion of my graduate thesis I took a position with Environmental Credit Corp (ECC). ECC is a leading member of the greenhouse gas cap-and-trade inspired Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX). They create environmental assets from greenhouse gas reduction projects. The company’s primary focused is on establishing a large and reliable source of carbon credits through cost-effective, long-term projects that reduce greenhouse gases. I worked with ECC as the companies first COO. Back then an environmental start-up, now I’m proud to say they are well on their way to fighting global greenhouse gases and global warming. With ECC I gained a great deal of experience and knowledge of Cap-and-Trade markets. I had the pleasure of meeting individuals like Dr. Richard Sandor, well known as the father of financial derivatives and currently the head of the Chicago Climate Exchange, as well as other influential Politicians and Business leaders dedicated to the fight against pollution.

Additionally, I own and operate a small alternative investment firm and hold a CA Real Estate Broker License as well as Real Estate Appraiser Licenses in CA, HI, and AZ which helps with investment evaluations, consulting services, and property acquisitions.

My education and professional experience have qualified me to teach and discuss topics involving Business, Finance, Financial Markets, Real Estate, Economics and Politics.
