If life is an order-creating system and change is a universal principle, then managing change is what life is all about. As most of us learn, change can bring about confusion, misunderstanding, and conflict. My job is to help identify and mitigate confusion and conflict through the communication of logic, empirical evidence, and scientific fact.
Forensics, as defined by Marcel Danesi, is the activity of presenting evidence and argument before an audience in order to make a persuasive case for a position or point of view. As a forensic consultant, I aim to frame and promote such activity.
I am a senior business management and advisory professional with over 50 years of experience in banking, investments, insurance, and consulting, including roles as CEO of companies ranging $20M to $20B annual sales operating in US and international markets on consumer and institutional platforms.
I provide commercial forensic and mediation services for individuals, families, law firms, and companies, especially those relating to investment disputes and litigation.
