Thank you for visiting my website. I am a criminologist with a cross-discipline background in law, psychology, and business management.
From 2000 to 2010 I managed a large animal shelter contracted to work with Washington State law enforcement to shelter and rehome neglected, abused, or abandoned horses. In 2005 a local resident died from a perforated colon after he was willing sodomized by a male horse, and one of the horses being trained to have sex with him came to our barn. Working with that first sexually abused horse changed the direction of my life.
Since 2005 I have assisted in an untold number of animal sex abuse investigations, worked with 22 states to create or improve laws prohibitng bestiality; conducted and published research findings in multiple journals; written countless articles and book chapters; and trained nearly 1,000 law enforcement officers, mental health professionals, and veterinarians on how to detect and investigate incidences of animal sex abuse.
The work I do is a public service, primarily funded through grants and earned revenue from specialized training via Chandler Edwards, a 509(a)(2) organization. But I don't do this work alone. I often engage trusted cybersleuths, grad students, volunteers and professionals to create and improve resources and maintain a comprehensive research library as well as an extensive proprietary database of offenders and incidents.
