Meet the team of Origin Forensics
Jarrod W. Carter, Ph.D.
Jarrod started training to practice accident reconstruction in 1989. In 1993, he obtained a Bachelor of Sciences in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University. He earned his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of Washington in 2002. He started practicing as an accident reconstruction and biomechanical injury analyst full time in 2000 and has continued that practice to the present. In his three decades in this field, he has earned a reputation for thoughtful detailed analysis and clear presentation.
James O. Moody, B.S.M.E.
James joined Origin in 2014. After completing a strenuous six-week interview process. During the interview process he demonstrated his passion for accident reconstruction, and continues to be an excellent addition to the Origin team. His passion to perform a detailed analysis and find the truth is always on display, and it is infectious. He has completed training and certifications in laser scanning (FARO), total station mapping (Nikon), crash data retrieval (Bosch), and crash simulation (HVE). He is currently working to expand his proficiency to video analysis and videogrammetry. James obtained a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Gonzaga University in 2014.
W. Kyle Rothwell
Kyle joined Origin in 2018 as a Forensic Technician. Arriving with a strong automotive background, as well as a background in computer aided drafting (CAD), he continues to prove that he has more to give. It is expected that he will be operating as a Forensic Analysis in his own right soon. He is currently working to obtain his Masters degree in Systems Engineering from Colorado State University.
One day, Billy called our office out of the blue seeking the opportunity to continue the automotive crash investigation and reconstruction career that he started as a contractor for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in Phoenix, AZ. After giving him a thorough interview and witnessing his determination and work ethic, the team decided he would make an excellent addition. Billy is also a veteran of the Navy, where he was a submariner, which means he always has a cool story or a side-splitting joke to tell.
Erin M. Foss
Erin joined Origin in 2013 with an indomitable attitude and an amiable manner that is second to none. Initially, she was supposed to be Jarrod’s assistant, which would be a difficult responsibility by itself; but, shortly after joining the company she was thrust into the role of office manager and bookkeeper. Many people might resist such a sudden change in roles and responsibilities, but Erin has never met a challenge she couldn’t surmount, all while smiling ear-to-ear. Since joining Origin she has been instrumental in making operations more efficient and profitable. Further, she has become known both in and out of the office for her ability to track down subject vehicles where others had failed.
