                                        General Information

I am a statistician with over 40 years of experience in the chemical industry. My statistical skills come out of
research, development, and manufacturing environments where the emphasis has been on rapid product
development and optimization. I have extensive experience in the design of experiments, analysis of experimental
data, and the characterization and optimization of processes and products.

As a statistical consultant, I work closely with you and your staff to get the most out of your ‘project dollar’ and
provide greater bottom line benefits to your company.  I can provide you with a wide range of services and

My approach to consulting is to have an excellent one-to-one relationship with the client, to listen very carefully to
the clients' needs, and to ask many questions. I consider project assignments to be collaborative efforts between
the client and me. I involve the client as much as possible in order to give and obtain direct and timely feedback.
This is the only way consulting works effectively.

I try to impart to my clients an understanding of the importance of the use of modern quality tools in their work. I
constantly emphasize the need for continuous improvement of products and processes and the necessity for good
analysis of the results.
