Volunteer since 2013 in the areas of Training, Certification, and Development.
After 23 years of serving in various roles as a police officer, Craig transitioned into digital forensics for his agency. Having no prior experience in that field, Craig found the CFCE process a rigorous one that required him to spend many hours of studying. It was in the days before Moodle, and it took him about 160 hours to complete. Craig was grateful for having a patient peer review coach, who moved on to be the Regional Manager for Craig’s area and encouraged Craig to become a coach. Craig could not say no. He wanted to repay the effort that his own coach had given him. Craig has contributed in many ways to IACIS, including developing material for the Hashing and Intro to Forensics Analysis blocks for BCFE.
Craig is now retired after serving 30 years as a police officer in Scotland. He lives in a coastal town east of Edinburgh and fills his days with running, reading, films, cooking, and brewing beer. He believes life would not be worth living if he did not have pizza on a regular basis. Craig has never been a fan of cricket and feels that people overuse the word “awesome” when, at the very most, “great” would suffice.
