I began my career in 1994, working as an engineer within the Labware Division of Becton, Dickinson & Co.  During my service I was responsible for ensuring regulatory compliance and overseeing quality assurance within the department.  In 1999, I started a consulting business that provided database development and technical writing services to other Becton Dickinson divisions.  Over the next ten years I expanded the business, providing these services to assembly, packaging and labeling equipment manufacturers.  This experience provided me with a diverse technical background in electrical and mechanical devices, sensors, robotics, vision inspection systems, medical devices, software, programming, internet applications and business methods.

An interest in patents prompted me to pursue a law degree at the University of Connecticut.  While there I centered my studies on real property and intellectual property law, focusing my attention on patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, and licensing issues. 

Over the years, I have enjoyed counseling clients on business, property and intellectual property matters and have developed a reputation for professional excellence. I currently reside in Berks County with my family.
