I am a thirty-year veteran detective, founder and owner of Creative Solutions Investigative Services™ (CSIS). CSIS is northern New Jersey’s largest full-service investigative firm. CSIS specializes in providing investigative support for complex litigation matters, including due diligence investigations, violations of non-compete agreements and family law matters, such as cohabitation investigations and child custody. New Jersey’s top law firms rely on CSIS’ investigative and legal experience to obtain comprehensive evidence and for legal strategy.
In 2012, I retired from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, the lead investigative agency for Morris County, New Jersey. During my law enforcement career, I received specialized training and developed specific skills and expertise which I am now applying to my work in the private sector. During my law enforcement career, I was assigned for four years to the Newark Division of the elite FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). I held Top Secret and SCI Security Clearances and conducted long-term international counter-terrorism investigations, including threats to national security.
In 2008, I founded the Morris County Burglary Task Force (BTF), responsible for coordinating burglary intelligence and investigations for Morris County. The BTF became a model for other county intelligence units in NJ and the lead intelligence unit for the major burglary crews targeting NJ. At the request of the FBI, I conducted intelligence briefings to various New Jersey counties and coordinated complex burglary and intelligence investigations, involving numerous police agencies throughout NJ, NY, CT and PA.
I have over 28 years of professional law enforcement experience performing forensic examinations and analysis in support of a variety of white collar crime and fraud investigations. My investigative expertise includes contract, health care, bank, corporate, bankruptcy, government and procurement fraud, as well as bank failure, bribery, corruption, money laundering and asset forfeiture.
I spent more than 25 years with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) rising to the position of Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) of the Newark Division. I supervised a variety of investigative programs while also managing million dollar financial budgets for programs and operations. I was the ASAC of the Intelligence Program focused on the establishment of new FBI Foreign and Domestic Intelligence Collection requirements and, previous to that the ASAC of the Newark Division’s busiest Criminal Branch program.
More recently, I was the Deputy Assistant Inspector General for the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction. I was stationed in Afghanistan, where I launched operations targeting fraud and corruption which had become endemic to the Afghan reconstruction effort. I was also an investigator with USAID-OIG in Afghanistan focusing on Contract and Procurement Fraud resulting in the loss of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars.
After returning to the USA, I worked for the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program where I investigated complex bank fraud and mortgage loan modification frauds perpetrated by those individuals abusing the bailout program.
Since January 2013, I have been performing consulting services for Mazars USA, Greystone Intelligence and most recently Clifton Larson Allen. I have used my expertise in the areas of litigation support, forensic examinations, financial statement fraud, anti-money laundering, compliance and ethics and FCPA consulting.
