    Teaching Style

    Students can expect an organized class and sequence of lectures from me. This helps both the students and me maintain focus on our leaning objectives given the large amount of information presented in shorter cohorts. We will certainly cover theory and the quantitative reasoning behind finance, but also make it very relevant to what is going on in today's finance and investment world.

    "I try to make classes informal and fun. When students begin to understand how theory actually plays itself out in today's finance and investment world they are more excited and eager to learn."
