Forensic Digital Imaging Specialist, Author, Underwater Photographer
York Regional Police

I have been with the forensic unit at YRP for almost 30 years now, specializing in forensic imaging. It has been very satisfying to share my knowledge and experience in computer fingerprint capture and enhancement with others, and my vision for this book was to write something I wish I had at my fingertips when our unit transitioned from film to digital in 1999. Additionally, I have the love of underwater photography, and enjoy assisting my husband Jody with his dive shop in Newmarket, ON
