I have 35 years as both an underwriter and insurance broker in property-casualty, captive formation and management, management liability, employee benefits, and cyber liability. I have been engaged as a consultant and expert witness over 90 times, including 30 depositions and 12 trials. I have testified at deposition or trial 12 times in the last year.

The combination of my research skills, writing aptitude, verbal acuity, intellectual curiosity, and business acumen reveals itself most clearly in complex litigation as is often required by Federal Cases. (See the published piece on Federal Rule 26 in articles below)

I built the 5th largest insurance brokerage in California and sold it to Aon where I managed a national unit advising 20 different industry practice areas. I also have founded six insurance technology firms. I have been president and board member of two publically held property casualty underwriters.

My major at Claremont McKenna College was business and economics and I completed the Harvard Business School’s owner/president management program. I earned the industry prestigious CPCU designation early in my career and have been licensed in all insurance brokerage categories in 50 states. (see my current educational credentials in the Articles section below.)
