I am an entrepreneurial doctor and educator turned health economist, journalist, author and professor of finance, investing, insurance and risk management, free-market capitalism and business administration.

Please feel free to read, download and access them from my accounts on SSRN, Google Scholar, Research Gate, H-Index, and other curated websites. You can also collect information on lectures and conferences, and see photos, consulting engagements and related activities. Then, explore this entire website designed as my comprehensive inter-active Curriculum Vitae; in-toto.

Academic Influence

Historically, my finance influencer was Kenneth Joseph Arrow PhD (23 August 1921 – 21 February 2017), the American economist, securities analyst, mathematician, risk manager, writer and political theorist. I just resonate with his protean academic background. He was the joint winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, with John Hicks in 1972. Today he is known as the “father” of health economics.

Other personally impacting authorities include the late Uwe Reinhardt PhD [Professor: Economics Princeton University] and Arnold Seymour “Bud Relman MD [Editor: New England Journal of Medicine] who coined the term “healthcare industrial complex.” Along with my friends and colleagues Richard Mata MD MA MS [CTO: Johns Hopkins University Health Information Technology], Thomas Getzen PhD CPA MBA [Chair Economics & Finance: Temple University School of Business], David Nash MD MBA [Dean: Thomas Jefferson University School of Population Health], Wesley Boyd MD PhD MA [Professor Psychiatry: Harvard and Yale Universities] and Ahmad Hashem MD PhD MA [CMIO: Microsoft Corporation]. All taught me much. I am grateful to them.

More broadly, I study the economic impact of various rules. I am curious about financial institutions, financial regulations (Dodd-Frank or Sarbanes Oxley), monetary institutions and central banks, free-market capitalism, the Euro, business firms and corporate culture. I am a student of Austrian Economics and F.A. Hayek. I am particularly curious about his “use of knowledge problem in society” and his thinking psychology on medical rent-seeking predators, medical paradoxes, Hobson’s Choice Medicine [decision-making, rationing and free enterprise] and behavioral health economics. I also study Austrian insights on central banking and business cycle theory as outlined by Carl Menger and Ludwig von Mises.

So, if inclined, kindly e-mail or leave me a brief message from the “Contact” tab page. I’ll be more than happy to connect with you.

  • Teaching Philosophy: tinyurl.com/ycx69epe


I came of age on the mean inner city streets of Baltimore, Maryland and developed a special interest in diversity, inclusion and urban renewal at a young age. Today, I resonate with the identity of human capital educational leadership; small classes or teams; engaged students and stakeholders; parents and teachers; research and development; and a motivated staff inculcating life-long learning initiatives and critical thinking skills.

Yet, I am not a career opportunist seeking incremental advancement through the halls of academia. Rather, I am a culturally sensitive and bi-racial physician-executive who senses there are deep, but often untapped, human resources embedded within many universities. If true; they are best released by an externally recruited champion of diversity and inclusion. A Chief Diversity Officer [CDO]; if you will.

This includes a respect for values that celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics and perspectives that make each person who they are; ethnicity; gender; gender identity; language differences; nationality; parental status; physical, mental and developmental abilities; race; religion; sexual orientation; skin color; socio-economic status; work and behavioral styles; the perspectives of each individual DNA shaped by their nation, experiences and culture—and more. Even when people appear the same on the outside, they are different. Importantly, such inclusion includes a strategy to leverage diversity.

  • Diversity always exists in social systems.
  • Inclusion, on the other hand, must be created.

In order to leverage diversity, an environment must be created where people feel supported, listened to and able to do their personal best; for example:

Personally, an important ruling on affirmative action by the Supreme Court in 1978 was the BAKKE Case. Allan Bakke, a white man, was denied admission to a medical school that had admitted black candidates with weaker academic credentials. Bakke contended that he was a victim of racial discrimination. The Court ruled Bakke had been illegally denied admission to the medical school, but also that medical schools were entitled to consider race as an admission factor.

As Department Chair and Residency Director at a local hospital, I was credited with accepting the first women residents and African Americans into our post-graduate education and surgical training program.So, at this level of blended pedagogy, andragogy and heutagogy, my mission is to be a modern guide on the side; not bombastic sage on the stage. Moreover, this philosophy holds special gravitas in order to set the tone for the future growth of inclusion and diversity thru example; in words and deeds.

It is a calling that requires a “hands-on” ambassador — helping to advise and lead in all related matters. As the sage once opined:

There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit!
