“I believe that I bring a unique combination of formal education in multiple disciplines and broad work experience spanning over 50 years to the Board. Besides practicing intellectual property law for companies both large and small, I have acted in the capacity of general counsel for several start-ups.  Thus, I have learned to appreciate both the spectacular advances in technology over the last several decades, and the investments, in terms of both human and capital resources, necessary to succeed in our highly competitive, fast-paced economy. The resulting combination of technical knowledge and business acumen serves me well on the Board.”
