I enjoy working with people to help bring better business ideas and technology into the world. I try to help people understand how the intellectual property legal system works and that it is a helpful tool, not an obstacle. I am committed to the long-term success of all my clients. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science with high honors from the Illinois Institute of Technology. After working for over 5 years in software development and technology consulting, I earned a Juris Doctor degree from the Chicago-Kent College of Law in Chicago, Illinois. I am admitted to practice in the state of Illinois. I am a registered patent attorney with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. I am a member of the American Bar Association, the Illinois Bar Association, and the Chicago Bar Association.
