I am passionate about helping others achieve tangible results with intangible property rights. I work with small business makers, creators, and innovators to discover the value in their ideas and manage their intellectual property (IP) estates to optimize their assets and opportunities.
I began my career as an IP attorney in the upper level of an award-winning renovated barn where I worked alongside three colleagues - and above an aromatic working horse stable. I went on to join Kimberly-Clark Corporation as a patent attorney and IP counsel and developed strategic IP plans that helped drive the global conglomerate’s business success. In my 24 years of practice, I have helped clients obtain hundreds of registrations for their patents, trademarks, service marks, and copyrights.
I am a graduate of St. Norbert College in De Pere, WI and The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, and a registered patent attorney with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. I live in Appleton, WI with my wife and three sons.
