Biography and Additional Professional Information

I have been involved in the field of polygraph since 1984. I first started as a police examiner and then worked for the National Security Agency as a line examiner (1987 to 1993,eventually becoming a Branch Chief/QC (1997 to 2000). In late 2000 I was selected to become the first Polygraph Technical Director overseeing all technical issues. My duties as the Technical Director involved ensuring that the agency comply with the federal standards, research, and teaching new examiners. I held this position until my retirement in January 2014. During this time I was participated and assisted in several academic research studies regarding polygraph and interviewing techniques. I recently started a business (Detecting Truth, LLC) which offers polygraph examinations in Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia in addition to providing classroom instruction on interviewing (body language/questioning).
