About Me

While my background is in software, intellectual property, real estate and corporate matters, I work on all manner of contracts, including things like hardware manufacturing, international distributor agreements, and cosmetics development and distrubution.


 


In my free time I enjoy salsa dancing, skiing, chess, and playing with my son and daughter.
