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.
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.

Digital video files can use a plethora of frameworks, codecs, file formats and software. Even standard video file formats created by professional grade equipment can appear differently, on the very same computer system, when played back via different software.
Are you seeing every frame? Has it been edited? Is it playing back at the proper speed? Are the colors correct? Why are there gaps in the video? How come I can only see the time stamp in some players, on some computers, but not all the time? What about the aspect ratio (width x height), is it correct? Can you explain why? I can.
I have been helping courts understand the true meaning of Digital & Multimedia Evidence for nearly 20 years. If it's DME and it's going to court, you need to Go Beyond the PLAY Button™
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).
