Academic Bio

Resumé and CV

Here’s my CV (pdf). Academic types can read my working papers.

Since Fall 2006 I’ve been teaching Introduction to Environmental Economics and team-teaching Introduction to Environmental Studies at the University of Washington’s Program on the Environment, which was awarded a 2007 Brotman Award for Instructional Excellence.

I’ve also taught at Lakeside High School and Bainbridge Graduate Institute and have been engaged in a number of consulting projects. I spent summer and fall 2011 in Beijing as a visiting research scholar at the Global Institute for Low-Carbon Economy, part of the University of International Business and Economics. And I’ve continued to pursue a career as the world’s first and only stand-up economist, with YouTube logging over 900,000 views of my economics jokes.

I was the project economist for Impacts of Climate Change on Washington’s Economy (January 2007). This report was commissioned by the state government and was produced by the Climate Leadership Initiative.

Published press reports include stories in the Seattle P-I (which also ran this editorial), the Seattle Times (which also ran this editorial), and NPR’s Day to Day.

Quantum Microeconomics is an open-source online textbook for introductory and intermediate microeconomics.

My class page has syllabi for principles, game theory, health economics, and Social Security.
