Mr. Scaler is a Mechanical Engineer that specializes in the reconstruction and forensic analysis of commercial and passenger vehicle collisions. He has a wealth of experience and training with automotive systems such as engine repair, automatic and manual transmissions, steering, suspension, electrical, braking system, and engine performance. He also has significant experience with the complexities of vehicle dynamics through both theoretical and real-world testing as a professional racecar driver in the motorsport environment. Mr. Scaler is fluent in engineering equipment including tools such as BOSCH Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) and three-dimensional laser scanning to document and preserve crash evidence. He also conducts research and stays up to date in the fields of occupant protection, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and automotive performance and their relevance to crash scenarios.

Mr. Scaler leans heavily on both his educational background as well as his real-world experience with motorsports engineering to analyze complex collisions at a level beyond what a textbook can provide.

Mr. Scaler earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Aerospace Engineering at Rutgers University School of Engineering, New Brunswick, New Jersey. While he was an engineering student, Mr. Scaler spent time designing, building, driving and competing in a variety of high performance vehicles at the professional level. His experience involves all categories of automobile performance from handling and stability, chassis design, drivetrain optimization, aerodynamics, suspension geometry, tire dynamics, and driver ergonomics and safety. He is also a knowledgeable fabricator with experience using machining equipment to build custom components. From over 15 years of experience in vehicle repair, maintenance, and design, Mr. Scaler brings a unique perspective to the forensic engineering industry. He spends his spare time driving vehicles and using data acquisition to optimize handling performance at racetracks across the country.
