Ron is a Marine Corps veteran who served with the Military Police in Yuma, Arizona. In the late 1980’s, Ron was introduced to the personal computer and the seeds that generated over thirty years of computing experience were sown.
As an employee of a National Aeronautics and Space Administration and U.S Government contractor, Ron was responsible for administering computer security procedures and ensuring compliance with government and company requirements for computing systems operating in heterogeneous environments.
The computing security and corporate investigation skills eventually merged, and his career focus became digital forensics. In his twenty years of digital and mobile forensics experience, Ron has supported numerous corporate investigations for organizations tasked with enforcing policies and laws. Ron has also sub-contracted to public defender and private digital forensic organizations to support criminal and civil litigation matters.
Ron has been an adjunct Computer Information Systems instructor at Highline College in Des Moines, WA since 2009, and was awarded Adjunct Faculty Member of the Year in 2019. He is a life member of the Computer Technology Investigators Network and provides presentations on digital forensics and data retention topics to students enrolled in digital forensic courses.
Ron holds a Digital Forensic Examiner Certificate from Highline College, and has extensive training in Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, Department of Defense, and vendor digital and mobile forensic courses.
