About me

I am a senior associate at Davis Wright Tremaine, practicing out of its Seattle office.


As a patent attorney, my practice focuses on drafting and filing patent applications as well as patent litigation and patent portfolio planning and maintenance. I have experience with U.S. and foreign patents in a wide variety of technology fields, including software, computer hardware and devices, e-commerce, biotechnology, mechanical devices and designs. My technical background includes graduate work in wireless communications, smartphone applications, computer learning, robot manipulators, digital signal processing, and computer communication networks.


I am author of Patents Demystified, which is an insider's guide to patents for startups, entrepreneurs and inventors. Available at Amazon.com and other retailers for only $25.95.
