I am an intellectual property attorney that helps technology-based businesses. I focus on helping companies build IP protection around their products and services, and also to defend a company’s technology from assertions by others.

I spend more of my time in certain sectors, generally centered on Innovative Technology. Some areas include artificial intelligence, health tech, and autonomous and electric vehicles.  These areas have tremendous potential to expand both in terms of Greenfield areas and application spaces.  Companies of all sizes can grow in lots of different directions, and I really enjoy supporting the company’s strategy to fuel that growth. I work with leading growth and tech companies across industries.

I’ve been at Foley for nearly 25 years.  I’m really fortunate to be part of an awesome team that really cares about our clients.  We measure our success by client success, whether that means capturing market share, going public, or being acquired by another market leader.  And, I’m personally inspired by being part of a high functioning team that looks out for each of its members.

Outside the office, I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running or working out at the gym, watching the market and dabbling in stock trading, and supporting local organizations that help people that can use a hand.
