I am always interested in collaborating with others on research projects; if you are interested in these topics, or would like to consult on other topics, please let me know!
My academic and professional background is a cross-discipline mix of business management, law, and psychology. Most of my early career involved large-scale presentations, training, and data management. Following a 25-year career in high-tech industries, I helped found a large animal shelter in 2001.
In 2005, a Washington resident died of septic shock after his colon was perforated from being sodomized by a male horse. I was involved in rehabilitating one of the victim's horses.
At that time, there were no resources for dealing with animal sexual abuse, not even a law prohibiting bestiality in Washington.
That first horse led to work with other animals, assistance with numerous investigations of suspected animal sexual abuse, development of legislation, and courses specifically for law enforcement (then prosecutors and social workers and veterinarians), research, and the publications of multiple articles, expert witness testimony, and a return to university to study criminology, law, and social behavior.
