Dave Amis

Dave is a Texas Private Investigator and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).

As Dave says, "most of my team is more qualified than me, which makes us a pretty good team."

Strider leads the way…

By studying military, intelligence, and law enforcement tactics, as well as the latest criminal and fraud techniques, we are constantly learning new ways to help our students.

Our team is uniquely experienced in training, surveillance, and a variety of PI disciplines.

We borrow from the best including with our training methodologies.  We provide self-study videos ONLY for learning Surveillance or Criminal Investigations theory. Then, when students arrive, we move straight to live-action training.  We keep an instructor to student ratio of 1-5 to maximize the student's learning curve.

"Learning by doing is essential to surveillance, OSINT, all of it" says Dave.

Leadership Profiles

David Amis
Chief Investigator, Owner

Dave may be the only Colorado Ranger – Harvard MBA – Texas PI on the planet.  He has served major family businesses as a CEO, consultant, and now investigator.

Previously Dave served as the Director of a research lab focused on serial sexual predators.  The methodology he used to discover the methods of serial predators is now being used to analyze and understand financial serial predators.  This gives his team an edge that other firms simply do not have.

Dave likes to serve people by solving major problems.  His triple skill set of PI, former CEO, and former cop means he can address any business or financial crisis as an investigator, negotiator, consultant or even interim CEO.
