About Me

About Me…

I am a high school teacher/coach and PhD Economist.  I enjoy economics, politics, teaching, and sports, and thinking analytically about each.  I have ideas on many topics that I am always formulating and I want to share those ideas, receive feedback, and spark discussions.  That is why I started my blog, but more importantly it is a place for me to organize my thoughts.


I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia with my wife Cara and son, AJ.

Where I’ve been…

I graduated from Hamilton College in 2005 as a mathematics major and physics minor.  I taught high school math at my alma matter Holderness School in Plymouth, NH from 2005-2007. I had an opportunity to play baseball for a season in 2008: http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=lavall001ada .  Then I continued my teaching career in the fall of 2008 at Episcopal Academy in Newtown Square, PA.  In the winter of 2016, I completed my PhD in Economics from Temple University.
