I founded Carney Forensics over eight years ago and today remain Chief Technology Officer and senior digital forensic examiner. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in architecture and media arts and sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and was employed as a software engineer, software architect, and chief technology officer for information technology companies in Massachusetts and Minnesota for over thirty years. Later I earned a Juris Doctor degree in law and dispute resolution from Hamline University School of Law and became licensed in federal and state courts in Minnesota and remain so today.

I am a faculty adviser for the Century College Cybersecurity, Virtualization and Forensics program in White Bear Lake, MN where I sit on the advisory board, guest teach, and supervise digital forensic student interns. I am also an associate member of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

I am certified in mobile device and computer forensics and hold certifications from Cellebrite and AccessData.

I have presented nationally on mobile device forensics at the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Conference (DC3), the American Academy of Forensic Sciences annual conference, the Paraben Forensics Innovation Conference, and for several years now at the Mobile Forensics World Conference,

I have presented scores of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars on digital forensics in Minnesota for Minnesota CLE, the Minnesota State Bar Association, the Hennepin County Bar Association, the Ramsey County Bar Association, the Minnesota County Attorney Association, Minnesota Society of Criminal Justice, Minnesota Paralegal Association, and many law firms in Minnesota.
