Primary Areas of Expertise

Accident Reconstruction

A traffic collision reconstructionist certified by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR), and a sUAV (drone) pilot licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration. With over 27 years in law enforcement, I have extensive experience with on-scene collision investigations ranging from minor fender-benders to multi-fatal collisions. I have investigated and assisted in the prosecution of hit-and-run collisions, DUI collisions, insurance fraud, vehicular manslaughter, and vehicular murder cases. Recognized as a subject matter expert in both criminal and civil courts for my knowledge of accident reconstruction, accident investigation, and general traffic enforcement.

I have over a thousand hours of training in accident reconstruction including but not limited to forensic mapping, pedestrian collisions, motorcycle collisions, emergency vehicle collisions, Crash Data Retrieval (CDR), staged collisions, interview and interrogations, and motor vehicle inspections. I also have over 12 years of experience teaching primary collision factors, investigation procedures, vehicle/evidence photography, insurance fraud, tire mark analysis, and basic collision reconstruction to law enforcement agencies all over Southern California at a prestigious law enforcement academy as well as the National Insurance Crime Bureau.
