Drawing on 40+ years of knowledge and experience in resolving complex problems with straight-forward, non-complex wisdom and communication.

Since 1966 I have been actively and successfully practicing fire protection engineering from Research and Development to Building/Fire code development. This includes enforcing Building Codes and Fire Standards; as well as consulting on the Codes and Standards as needed. Over the years, this has led to fire protection engineering on major projects throughout the United States. I have also been internationally recognized in litigation support and qualified as an expert witness consulting on cases in the United States and its Territories.

I have recently been successful in two major trials: In the first in St. Louis, consulting for the defense, we were found not liable in a $4M + suit involving a generator building fire at the St. Louis Airport.

In the other in Cheyenne, WY, consulting for the plaintiff, we obtained the largest Civil verdict in WY history $3M + $25M punitive damages in a carbon monoxide poisoning case.

Fire Protection, Life Safety, Health Care, High-Rise Construction and Expert witness are all serious undertakings. They require a detailed clear-eyed and experienced approach. Put my skills to work for your safety.
