I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and a Masters in business administration at the Florida Institute of Technology. I studied law at New England Law in Boston, graduating in 1989.
Previously I have been employed by top Fortune 500 companies (Raytheon Company, Scientific-Atlanta (Currently Cisco), Intel Corporation, and RealNetworks) as an in-house corporate patent and trademark attorney and represented other major companies (Microsoft, IBM, GE, Lenovo, Amazon, HP, Infineon and Boeing) as an outside patent counsel. In April of 2006, I opened my own private practice with a focus on intellectual property services.
I am a member of the Georgia, Florida, Washington State and Massachusetts bar, and I am also registered to practice before the US Patent office. I have been a Florida Bar board certified Intellectual property attorney.
