About Cal Nexus
My name is Chris Nelson, and I am the creator of Cal Nexus, a Private Investigator and Security company located in Orange County, California. I was an FBI Agent for 26 years in the San Francisco Bay area and in Southern California.

In 2014, I left the FBI and worked for 3.5 years as a Vice President and Global Security Investigator for JPMorgan Chase.
While in the FBI, I managed large cases in areas such as White Collar Crime, Internet Fraud, Bank Fraud and Government Contract Fraud. For over 4 years I also managed cases involving computer hackers trying to steal corporate and Goverment data.

With Chase, I worked hundreds of investigations involving employee theft, customer fraud, regulatory abuse, and employee misconduct.

Badge and service pins from my FBI retirement plaque.
This is the badge I carried with my credentials for 26 years.
Prior to the FBI, I worked as an internal auditor and a rate analyist for a large oil and gas energy company named Questar Corporation (now Dominion Energy ).

I have an MBA and have passed the CPA exam. When I was young, I lived in Switzerland for three years, and in Italy for two. At the time, I was fluent in French and spoke very good Italian.
While with the FBI, one of my skills was aviation where I was a pilot-in-command and flew over 5000 hours in support of a wide variety of investigations. In total, I have over 6000 hours of flight experience in manned aircraft.

While in the FBI, I also received frequent computer training to augment my existing computer skills, and to help me understand the actions of the hackers I was tracking.
