I enjoy learning new and innovative technologies. Understanding the client’s invention and its key inventive aspects are critical to advancing the client’s interests.

Quickly comprehending new technologies is one of my key strengths. I prosecuted patent applications for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to start-up ventures and individual inventors in various kinds of technologies, including semiconductor manufacturing, photocopying systems, LED lighting, surgical tools, PCB inspection, LED/OLED displays, vehicle automation, and communication standards patents. This diverse experience makes me adept in understanding a wide range of novel technologies.

One of the most important skills for a practicing patent attorney is attention to detail. I believe having a strong attention to detail is what distinguishes a great work product from simply an acceptable result.

I believe in exceeding expectations. As George Patton said, “Always do more than is required of you.”

My philosophy in life is to be open to new ideas. I persevere to constantly learn and improve upon my skills.
