Sets Impossible Standards. Works Impossible Hours. Accomplishes Impossible Things.
For over 30 years I have been solving problems for our Government, Military, Law Enforcement and citizens through the deployment & use of state-of-the-art technologies. Having twice been personally selected to apply for a position at our country's White House (under two different Administrations), among many other notable honors & accomplishments, I have spent the better part of the last 20 years focusing my efforts on Digital & Multimedia Evidence collection & analysis.
During operations Golden Pheasant (Honduras), Just Cause (Panama), Desert Shield (Saudi Arabia), Desert Storm (Iraq/Kuwait)), and Operations Restore Hope & Gothic Serpent (Somalia) I served with the United States Army's 82nd Airborne Division. In 1993 I was named Team Chief of the 82nd's Emergency Operations Communications Center (EOC).
I am a Lifetime Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Member, and my membership was gifted to me via community donations to post 2674. The post has since been dissolved, but numbers and buildings don't matter to me. People do.
Today I am honored to be considered by many of my esteemed colleagues around the world as a pioneer of several of our industry's adopted Standard Procedures, Best Practices & Guidelines dealing specifically with Digital Multimedia Evidence (DME). I am a firm believer in open & secure information sharing, and have dedicated my career to sharing what I know, while of course simultaneously learning from others.

My professional technology career began with the United States Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, where I served for the better part of seven years. Following my honorable discharge from the military, I relocated back to New York to attend school, and in 1997 I accepted a position as Telecommunications Manager for an upstate NY local government.
During my time in local government, I became a certified New York State Peace Officer and New York State Municipal Police Instructor, and I went on to help establish one of the first law enforcement digital evidence labs in New York State. I am a former member of the FBI Southern Tier Cyber Predator Task Force and the New York State Digital & Multimedia Evidence Technical Working Group.
I have processed hundreds of videotapes and volumes of digital storage media containing multimedia evidence for both criminal and civil investigations throughout the world. I have provided testimony pertaining to my analysis in both state and federal U.S. courts.
I have also served as a technology consultant to multiple state and local law enforcement agencies and related industry associations, such as to the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).
Semi-Retirement (June, 2021)
I deleted my LinkedIn profile in June, 2021 only to realize that I'll need a profile there if I ever want to advertise our new Scholarship! In any case, I'm happy to provide my Curriculumn Vitae (CV) as required via email, Dropbox, etcetera when necessary.
I'm trying to answer fewer calls, work fewer hours, yet help even more people..if I can...during Semi-Retirement. To that end, I created DME Resources Scholarship, SPC, where I will focus my efforts for the next few years.
In the meantime, I still welcome Government and Professional customers to call me directly at (509) 228-8332 if they feel I may be of assistance.
