Special Skills:
My specialty is making practical sense out of complexity, providing practical, social-science-based solutions to clients'​ marketing problems, the more challenging the better. I deliver substance, not flash; practical insight, not pablum. Equally at home with qualitative and quantitative methods, I have the reputation of being a world-class analyst and story-teller. And innovator -- for example, I've had great success using online focus groups to explore and test websites/web portals in real time during the group. For the past six years I have been specializing in energy/energy efficiency along with healthcare/biopharma.

All this overlies my background as a sociological practitioner. I co-founded the Clinical Sociology Association (now part of the AACS), published two groundbreaking applied sociology textbooks, other social science books, many journal articles, and two classic "trade" books on personal transformation (one of which was a best seller),

I exercise the right side of my brain assisting my wife with her Americana music labels, Frederick Productions and Red Newt Records.
