I love the energy of a , and the idea that we’re helping it succeed. Almost all come to us with some form of a better mousetrap and this innovation needs protection.

Representative Experience: I have advised clients on strategies and tactics for building a patent portfolio, risk assessment and design-around strategies. I've handled numerous complex prosecution matters, including post proceedings and appeals. My prosecution practice focuses on technologies related to electrical engineering and computer science. I have litigated patents and trade secrets relating to communication systems, computer software, storage systems, digital cameras, electronic security, hard disk drive testing technology, wireless communications, electronic circuits, optoelectronics, and semiconductor manufacturing equipment. Currently, I'm working with Skyhook Wireless and Nantero to build their patent portfolios.

Favorite App: MyFitnessPal.

Daily Reads: ESPN and CNN.

Favorite Book: Ulysses and A Confederacy of Dunces.

Off the Clock: I enjoy spending time with my family and going to the gym.
