Meticulous. Persistent. Proven.
Hire me to conduct your research when results matter.
I typically work with attorneys, journalists, hiring committees and political or issues campaigns - regardless of partisanship (Note: If you're racist or homophobic, please move along.)
That work includes but is not limited to:
Working relationships with:
Kentucky obviously has my heart and my strongest contacts are in the Commonwealth. I frequently work in Washington, D.C. and regularly on the west coast. Abroad, I have experience and strong working relationships in Canada, the UK, Sweden and in Southeastern European nations like Bosnia and Croatia.
That means I can do high-tech nerd stuff other researchers can't. Running a business as an investigative journalist and researcher for more than a decade meant I had to use those skills on a daily basis. I didn't just write the story... I also built the system that hosted it. There's no hiring a separate developer to find corruption when you work with me – I dig through code myself. Need physical data collection on any sort of scale? I'm the guy who builds single-board computers with sensor arrays and LTE modems that will fit anywhere. Yes, really:
Shady agencies don't get away with lying to me about data-related matters because I'm a nerd and know my way around modern government better than most. TL;DR: Get you a researcher who can do both.
Want privacy? I'll sign non-disclosure agreements (even for journalists/reporters) or work through attorneys. Utilize secure communication protocols that include Signal, Tor and PGP.
Some common sense stuff: If you're the victim of a crime? Call police. If you need an attorney? Call an attorney. I am not a private investigator and do not want to be. I am an investigative journalist-turned-researcher.
