How am I able to create breakthrough materials and solve problems so quickly? That’s a great question. I am a PhD chemist, so I understand materials on a molecular level.

Someone suggested that I mention examples so people can get a feel for what I can deliver. While working at BASF’s HQ in Germany, I heard about a serious problem they had struggled with for 30 years. It involved their ABS plastic and they had spent millions trying and failing to solve the problem. My colleagues told me it was hopeless. One day, on my way out of the office to take some holiday, I wrote down 5 ideas for my technicians to try while I was away. I came back from holidays to hear that the first idea had worked. We verified the results, scaled it up and wrote patents to protect it. The managers at BASF were stunned. Many more examples can be found in the dropdown menus at the top of this page and in the New Products Created page.

Having a retainer in place leads to a closer relationship and the more I understand their needs, the better I can help. Also, when I’m very busy, only retainer clients are guaranteed service. Lastly, retainer client receive more favorable rates.

This video is the full report. Please note that my role as a plastic materials expert witness is to support patient’s lawyers to get a favorable court outcome. I cannot help patients directly.
