About Me

Education must inspire the faith that each of us has both the power and the responsibility to effect positive change on a global scale. - Daisaku Ikeda


I am a native of Germany, living in Santa Cruz. I have been teaching Economics courses at De Anza College since 2010. In addition to my passion for conveying the economic concepts to students we also explore current events and connect them to economic principles. I encourage students to collaborate and discover economics in and beyond the classroom and in their daily decision-making processes.

I am actively involved in the Environmental Sustainability and Global Citizenship (ESGC) Committee, and am currently engaged in a collaborative research project on Environmental Economics issues (fellowship) with Stanford University. I have also served on the Academic Senate and the DARE Committee at De Anza for several years.

I deeply care about the well-being of all students and strife to guide and open their potential towards authenticity and success.
