About Me

I have an active practice, exclusively focused on intellectual property protection and enforcement.  This includes copyright, trademark, trade secrets, computer software, entertainment and patents.  I am a registered patent attorney, but do not currently prosecute patent applications.  I counsel businesses and individuals about how they may protect their rights by way of registrations, contracts, licenses and confidentiality preservation methods and how to avoid conflict with other's intellectual property.

As I live in Colorado, I enjoy the many outdoor activites available.
