For more than 15 years, he has worked in the industry or consulted businesses on big-picture IT Management issues, as well as deeply technical issues. His foundation as a programmer/developer, formal training in IT, as well as years of experience working with businesses provides him with an extremely deep understanding of a multitude of issues that arise on the computer.
His development experience further provides him with a deep understanding of how data is stored, and where it is stored, which gives him a distinct advantage when considering how Computer Forensics can be used to obtain the evidence.

He has developed the techniques and procedures that protect and preserve the evidence, allowing its admissibility in courts, as well as performing the actual analyses on cases.
