Hi, my name is Andrew G. Watters. I am a radically honest, category-defying polymath based in my hometown of San Mateo, California, USA. I have a law degree from U.C. Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, a bachelor's degree from UCLA, and fifteen to twenty years of professional experience in multiple industries. Currently, I have my own law firm, photo studio, and IT/R&D/cinema laboratory. I offer legal services, digital cinema, and custom web application programming. My favorite compliment that I've gotten lately is: "you're a polite gunfighter with a silver tongue." Yeah, that's accurate.
September 27, 2021 - I have outdone myself this time with a new project that's in development. It's called Rællic -- a system for recording, measuring, and analyzing credibility indicators in interpersonal communication using a combination of high resolution 3D scanning plus thermal and hyperspectral imaging. In other words, stereoscopic video and 3D point clouds of a person's face/body while they are talking/testifying, which I will record, measure, and analyze for movements and expressions (and thermal changes) on their face as well as gestures. The system will be the main component of my Trial Laboratory project, which is part of my law practice. It's going to be a portable system, so size and weight matter a lot more than price. The intention is mainly to do trial consulting for profit, but also to produce research-quality data for possible use in academic-type papers in the fields of psychology and law. I am very excited about this, which is a fusion of all the areas I'm interested in and all the knowledge and experience that I have. I should have done this years ago. The all-seeing eye in this original concept art piece that I produced is an appropriate metaphor:
IT consultant - network analysis, forensics, custom computer systems, cybersecurity audits, and other services with a deep bench of experts in this region.
Web application programmer - law practice management system and specialized task management/productivity software written from scratch by yours truly. If you're wondering how I have time to practice law while doing all these different things...this is how.
Warnings. These are products and services I strongly urge you not to use:
Dell UltraSharp 8K monitor - the ultimate workstation display, and perfect for editing 4K and 8K video. This product seemed promising, but it turned out to be defective in design and disappointing in reliability. Replaced twice under warranty and failed in less than a year each time. I am not only deleting this endorsement; I am also warning you against buying this product.
