I am a professor emeritus of Applied Economics, University of Minnesota. From 2002 to 2007, I was the Associate Dean and Director for the University of Minnesota Extension and part of the leadership team which designed and implemented Minnesota Extension's 2004 move to a regional/county system. Earlier in my career I was a professor of applied economics and Extension economist at South Dakota State University, Ohio State, and University of Minnesota. I also had a teaching and research appointment in community economic development, focusing on economic impact analysis and business retention and expansion strategies. I enjoy teaching in an active learning mode and look forward to active discussion in this course.
Before starting in Extension, I earned degrees at the University of Maine, Purdue, and University of Wisconsin. Now my wife and I live in Cape Elizabeth on the coast of Maine and really enjoy Maine's four seasons, with opportunities to canoe, garden, bike, ski, and walk the beach all year round.
