Consulting

I provide balanced, thoughtful, and dispassionate analyses of complex questions and situations. In order to accomplish this task, I collect relevant information, understand the quality of that information, determine numerous possible explanations concerning the dynamics of the question or situation, and then present my analysis in as objective a manner as possible. This consultation has traditionally focused on the following areas:
