About me:

I truly enjoy helping my clients resolve their most pressing and complex business problems.

I have extensive knowledge and experience in science, business, engineering, information technology and digital forensics.

During my career, I have performed and managed hundreds of fraud investigations and helped dozens of dental professionals involved in mediation, civil litigation and arbitration matters.

My fraud blog is Dental FraudBusters! Dentistry’s most popular anti-fraud and embezzlement website.
