Educational Background

  • PHD - Economics, Auburn University
  • MA - Economics, St. Mary's University, San Antonio
  • BA - Economics, St. Edward's University


I was born in southern California and grew up in Tulsa, OK and Houston, TX. I finished a B.A. in Economics at St. Edward's University (Austin), an M.A. in Economics at St. Mary's University (San Antonio), and a Ph.D in Economics at Auburn University (Alabama). During that time I also completed 8 years in the US Coast Guard reserves. I worked for or with H.C. Wainwright, Economics, Inc., Polyconomics, the Institute for Research on the Economics of Taxation, Holt Value Associates, Credit Suisse, and South Texas Money Management (now Captrust). In each major role (Wainwright, HOLT, Credit Suisse,) I advised senior executives (Chief Investment Officers and Senior Portfolio Managers) at some of the largest corporations and institutions in the world. I was the President and Chief Economist of South Texas Money Management when we sold it in the fall of 2019 (where I had also been a partner).
