How I can help you
I can help you to stay focused on your business priorities and at the same keep the big picture in view and being mindful of potential pitfalls. I'm a business and legal professional.
I currently provide general counsel services to technology startups and small businesses. I am licensed to practice law in the state of California and qualified to practice in the state of Oregon. In law school I focused on intellectual property, privacy law, and legal issues facing entrepreneurs. After graduating law school, I served as Interim Managing Director of the High Tech Law Institute at Santa Clara University School of Law.
As an entrepreneur I founded and managed several non-profits, ran political campaigns for libraries, and co-founded a clinic to teach self-litigation to undocumented residents.
Previously, I worked in systems engineering for the aerospace, defense, and nuclear energy industries.
I am passionate about social justice and helping others fulfill their potential. Let's discuss how I might be able to help you.
