I am a criminologist with a cross-discipline background in law, psychology, and education, specializing in deviant sexual behavior involving animals.  As a criminologist, my focus is on people who commit crimes - why they do it, the impact of their criminal behavior on our societies, and how to prevent future offending through appropriate sentencing and treatment of offenders.

Since 2005 I have assisted in an untold number of investigations involving the sexual abuse of animals, 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 suspected 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 grad students, volunteers, trusted cybersleuths, and professionals in multiple disciplines to create and improve resources and maintain a comprehensive research library as well as an extensive proprietary database of offenders and incidents.

If I may be of help to you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me.
