Me in a minute

I have designed mechanical devices as well as software enterprises

I pride myself in having a broad, jack-of-all-trades, understanding of technology and a deep desire to learn how innovators solve problems, being an inventor myself. Having also been labeled a problem-solver, I love to explore the various options available and execute solutions, given the time constraints every project has.

I have designed mechanical devices as well as software enterprises, for myself and clients, and seen them put to use; often prosecuting patent applications during the development stages.

As a patent agent I’m fortunate to work with a broad range of innovators, such those in the in the financial sector and the mechanical arts, to bring life to their ideas and offer them protection for their tremendous efforts in advancing technology.
