 A Bit About Me

I’m a behavior analyst and body language expert.  I help business professionals develop specific skills that enable them to make better decisions in real time about the people they do business with.

My speaking engagements and training keep me in the environment I enjoy most; Teaching people what to look and listen for when dealing with deception, safety, and communicating on any level of business.

I am the lead Interrogation and Body Language Trainer at iCenter where I train Law Enforcement, Military, Lawyers, Private Investigators, and Mediators.

I am also the Entrepreneur In Residence at The Nashville Entrepreneur Center where I helped create, and am head of, the Pitch Department.  There, I lecture on body language, conduct Body Language workshops, and provide one on one training with startups and entrepreneurs teaching them how to create investor pitches for funding with a laser focus on Body Language.

I’m happily married to my wife, Ambre, and we have two dogs; Albert, a Maltipoo and Hattie, a Chihuahua.  We live in Nashville, Tennessee.  In my free time I enjoy researching and spending time with my friends and family.
