The Majors in University in Microbiology and Zoology were the prime motivators for his interest in the development of the many bio-hazard seminars that he has developed and delivered for adjusters and property managers. His research and collaboration with the leading environmental researchers in the USA have provided him with the most recent mitigation practices in bio-restoration. This research has extended beyond mould and asbestos and into lead, silica, radon, forensics, cannabis, methamphetamine, fentanyl and many others. The world is changing and it is imperative those in the restoration business stay ahead of the game in keeping your clients and their families safe and healthy.
