Hello world!

Day one of my blog and this is a day that may or may not go unnoticed in the annals of blogging.  Only time will tell.

I am a Private Investigator licensed by the State of California (CA PI Lic. #20100)  I opened my own shop in 1999 and since that time I have worked on cases in the areas of civil, criminal, family and probate law.  I’ve worked on cases involving huge forest fires and slip and falls and I have found people and information that other didn’t or couldn’t find on their own.

In 2005 I began teaching a class called “Find Anything On Anyone” at the Learning Exchange (LEX) in Sacramento.


The LEX picked the name and it is a little too broad, but the purpose is to teach people where accessible information exists .  No hacking, no sneaking, just learning where useful information is and how to use it.  In a 2 and 1/2 hour class we cover, court records (State and Federal), county recorder records, assessor’s records, marriage records, death records, birth records and a variety of State records, particularly  corporate records maintained by the office of the Secretary of State.  We even cover the basics of the Freedom of Information Act.

Over the years the class has been attended by paralegals, other investigators and a bankruptcy trustee as well as people looking for long-lost relatives, long-lost lovers (or people they wished had been lovers) and people who owed them money.

This blog is intended to be an extension of the class and help you search more effectively or decide to have a professional do it for you.

    I was the Program Director with the Learning Exchange when John first started this class – and his students loved him. He always received such great feedback. If you’ve ever wanted to learn where accessible information exists – this is the class to take.
