Economist | Teacher | Researcher

I graduated from Florida State University and moved to Arlington, Virginia to continue my education at George Mason University. After completing my graduate studies as a Mercatus Center MA Fellow at George Mason, I moved to the midwest to pursue my new career!

I am the Program Manager at the Institute for Economic Inquiry at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. I help coordinate events, assist in reading groups and the overall development of our student and faculty programs. I also am an instructor of economics at the Heider College of Business.

My passion for economics has put me on a mission to communicate complex ideas in a manner understandable to the uninterested (and the disinterested) citizen. Understanding economics can help increase the level of decision-making and quality of life we all strive to attain. Additionally, by illuminating the economic way of thinking, I can more clearly explain the reasoning behind the constant fight for individual liberty.

As a second-gen Cuban, the ideas of liberty have resonated profoundly with me and the study of economics allows me to use logic and empirical analysis to argue for these ideas. I hope to one day be able to teach economics to younger students in the same way that led me to have such a life-changing experience.

‚ÄčI have a beautiful wife, Olivia who has been by my side since January of 2014. She also graduated with a degree in Economics from Florida State University. She is now a Salesforce Consultant. We have a fantastic dog, Becker, named after the Nobel laureate Gary Becker. We are followers of Christ, to Whom we give all the glory.
