My journey into deception detection first began in the 1980s after I trusted the wrong guy with my safety. I continued my lie spotting training after I learned that monogamy didn’t exist in my relationship (even though I thought it did). Finally, after watching the 5 o’clock news in 2009, I learned that my long-time friend and associate was being charged as a principal in a Ponzi scheme, the same person with whom I invested my retirement, and daughters’ college savings accounts with. It was at that moment I decided I was going to fully immerse and dedicate myself to becoming a deception expert.
I had always been considered intelligent and very good at research. I did not jump into any of the above without extensive and careful consideration. How could I have missed such high-stakes deception?
I was impassioned to make sure I learned everything factual about deception based on proven scientific methods. I made it my mission to master the knowledge, skills and abilities in deception detection in order to share this valuable information with others so they could avoid similar painful experiences.
For years I’ve worked as a deception expert consulting in the corporate world with medical, law enforcement, litigators, news media and human resources professionals. This is a worthwhile and interesting niche to share my expertise. I’ll work with anyone who wants to get to the truth, although these professions listed above tend to be clients more than others.
These same skills are transferable on a personal level as well. Parents want help to tell if their kids are lying, as well as peace of mind toward facility providers caring for their elderly parents. I regularly receive questions from people in relationships or wanting to get into a relationship so that they are able to feel more confident in their judgments with a significant other.
Today I’m the managing director of Concealed Statements where I get to consult with others about truth, credibility and deception. I love what I do. My business is so rewarding. If my prior experiences and my current expertise can help others from getting hurt, cheated on or scammed, then my day was not wasted.
As an analyst, consultant and speaker I’ve helped people from all around the globe learn how to have the confidence and peace of mind that comes from believing the truth and disbelieving lies.
