About me

My  law practice focuses on the preparation and prosecution of patent applications protecting computer software, hardware and various Internet-related inventions.  In addition, my work includes counseling business clients, entrepreneurs and independent inventors on brand management strategies, intellectual property commercialization and infringement issues, and effective strategies for maximizing the value of brand and intangible assets. 


In addition to my professional interests, I enjoy bike riding, mountain hiking, reading, travel and learning foreign languages. 


Last, but not least, I hold a first degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
