Consulting

As a consultant, I create academic curriculum and corporate training materials in addition to developing WordPress blogs, and providing expert witness testimony. Notably, a report I prepared for defendants in a copyright infringement lawsuit earned them $500,000 in previously suspended royalties. Below are businesses, individuals, and organizations for whom I have consulted.
