I have been at CU since 2008, teaching at both the MBA and the undergraduate levels. I teach Managerial Economics (MBAC6010 and MBAC6011), Financial Markets and Institutions (MBAX6240 and FNCE4070), International Financial Management (INBU4200) Core Finance (BCOR2002), Personal Finance (FNCE2820) and Senior Capstone (FNCE4850).  Very active in study abroad, I direct Leed’s London Finance Seminar and codirect Accounting In a Global Economy in London and Amsterdam.  I teach abroad at the CU-associated Consortium of Universities for International Studies (CIMBA) in Paderno del Grappa, Italy and at the University of Management and Economics (ISM) in Vilnius, Lithuania.

An instructor since 1989, I have taught in almost all the sub-specialties of both finance and economics at undergraduate and master's levels, both classroom and on-line.  With a parallel career at Hewlett-Packard Company since 1984, I was most recently in Global Operations Finance for the Printing and Personal Systems Group, responsible for supply chain / tax strategy, forecasting, and reporting.  I retired from HP in 2015.
