APPROACH

“I graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S.E. in Materials Science & Engineering. Following graduation, I worked in the automotive industry as a Materials Engineer with DENSO International America for nearly six years. As a Materials Engineer, I had responsibility for nonmetallic materials and worked in such areas as thermoplastic composites, elastomers, organic coatings, and injection molding.

I am a member of the State Bar of Michigan, Michigan Intellectual Property Association, and Oakland County Bar Association. I am registered to practice in the Eastern District of Michigan, Court of Appeals Federal Circuit, and before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. I am also a co-founder of the Warrior Bar Association for Brother Rice alumni attorneys.”
