I am pleased to be located in and providing patent law services in beautiful Central Oregon.  I work out of my home offices in Bend doing work for the Washington intellectual property law firm of Constellation Law Group while at the same time providing patent law services to individual inventors in Central Oregon.  Working with individual inventors is enjoyable because of the variety of their backgrounds and their inventions.  When I am not working in the office, I enjoy bicycling, hiking and kayaking in the outdoors and taking the opportunities for culture and relaxation in Central Oregon.  My background (discussed in more detail below) includes being a registered Patent Attorney, licensed to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, having over nine years of full-time equivalent experience drafting and/or prosecuting patent applications, and having a degree in computer science from Portland State University.
