Founder of SDL Behavioural Science Consultancy, FACS Certified, New Zealand's Micro Expressions, Body Language & Deception Detection Expert.
Becoming proficient with non verbal communication and teaching what I’ve learnt over the years has become an absolute passion of mine; starting with beginning the SDL Behavioural Science Facebook Page, then set up my first online course in 2011, and my first book on the subject True Lies, A Guide to Reading Faces, Interpreting Body Language & Detecting Deception in the Real World was published in 2013.
During this time I’ve helped thousands of people around the world become proficient in reading body language, micro expressions and detecting deception – and I’d love to help you too.
Here's a little about me:
I became the first Facial Action Coding System (FACS is the most detailed de-coding of the face, and universally recognized by psychologists and physiologists worldwide) Certified consultant in New Zealand, and continuing to study psychology, body language, micro expressions and FACS has helped me to become New Zealand's leading expert in this area. I was also one of the first in the world to achieve Master Level on Humintell's Mix Elite Micro Expressions software.
I've worked with participants from New Zealand, Australia, United States, United Kingdom, India, Canada, Germany, Afghanistan, Portugal, Switzerland, Poland, Macedonia and Sri Lanka so far. This includes working with participants from the NZ Defence, IRD Fraud Investigators, Sri Lankan Customs, Homeland Security, Telecom NZ and Vodafone to name a few.
